Another day out
Same old setup, from last weekends trip
May I ask, is that a SlingFin 2trek
I'd really like to see yinz post the tent manufacturer with the comments for the pictures.
I had this tent for more than 8 years and still working fine, i took a photo beside a stubby holder so you see the size when is packed,plenty of room for two pwople,my boots,helmet,pants and jacket fit in between the two walls and i can seat inside,hope it helps
That's a sweet setup. Slingfin has something similar to it and I'm looking at, but it's not available at the moment. I talked to them and was told their waiting for the Fly. Also the offer a sweet discount for veterans to boot.
This was the setup for my recent 3+ week tour of UT and CO. I prefer to sleep in a hammock but out west there are many places without suitable trees and hanging is frowned in many state and national parks. So I travel with a bit of non overlapping redundancy. Tent and sleeping pad for when i need to go to the ground and hammock, underquilt and tarp for a very comfortable hang. In Telluride a couple of weeks ago I was comfortable down to 28 degrees in the hammock. I find I get colder (and less comfortable) in the tent.
Day of departure on Old Spanish Trail Near Tacoma, CA
2 medium Ortlieb waterproof duffles, Paniers and a tank bag.
Wild camp after the rain near Natural Bridges, Utah
Wild Camp on BLM near Howard Colorado

Wild camp near Gold Point, NV.
So are you keeping both the tent and hammock sets with you for when you have to go to ground?
I take both when going solo... 2up with 2 mats, bags, 2 chairs, 2 fishing rods, clothes for 2 etc and I still take the tarp.. So when solo, I have lots of room to add the hammock.
The quilts can double for the hammock or tent sleeping.
I bring a hammock with no frills when I solo to nap in. I sleep on the ground in a tent. The Hammock itself weighs about 2 lbs and rolls up the size of a soda can
Packed for a tent camping weekend. Actually had extra space in each of the bags.
Sequoia Nat Park this weekend.
I do indeed carry both.
avejoe, which pannier racks are you using?
Have you considered packing a hammock stand?
