    Hello all,

    Thought I'd sign up for here on the recommendation of another forum user. I spend most of my time hammocking these days however I'll be looking to lighten my ground equipment in the near future. I've long procrastinated about generally lightening the load but my back says it's time to make a more serious effort on that front this year. Got the West Highland Way in April so hopefully start to shed some weight in the run up to that.

    I hope you all have a good 2017.

    Thanks for the welcome folks. :)

    Hello Craige,

    You gave me some invaluable advice on that on the hammock forum and I've decided to go for it with the hammock. My Warbonnet winter wooki underquilt just turned up (after being taken to the cleaners by customs) and I've got a top quilt on order as well. I'm just trying to figure out what to take as a backup ground mat also swithering between alcohol or gas. I'll delay the headache of clothing until that's all sorted.Haha!
