Re: Autumn hammock camping on the AT.

Nice trip report.

I was just looking at under quilts for my Hennessey tonight. I have a Downmat 7 also, I guess I could give that a try instead. Though it seems like with the angles, and getting in and out of the hammock it would be difficult and uncomfortable. Worth a shot.

Re: The Last of Us

I don't think PS4 will be back compatible with PS3, or so I've read. For all you guys without a PS3, Uncharted 1-3 alone is worth getting one for. Last of Us sweetens the deal. There will probably be a glut of used PS3s on the market after the 4 comes out later this year.

Re: Bug Out Gear Deals (Post 'em when you find 'em) I

Just saw this on Amazon. Most cases of Clif bars are 15% off, but this seems like the best deal. It's a 10 pack for $3.99, with free super saver shipping! http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0074B4JA0/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B0074B4JA0&linkCode=as2&tag=na0fab-20...

Re: Down VS Fleece

I either wear fleece in combo with a gore tex, or have it strapped to the outside of my pack. I keep a Patagonia down jacket stuffed inside my pack as an alternative for when I'm not exerting myself, as a backup layer if the fleece gets wet, or an additional layer if it gets really cold.

Re: Prepared bags for homeless

Gift cards to local dollar store. They don't sell alcohol, I doubt the card could be traded for drugs, and they can use them to get food, drinks, hygiene, or whatever else necessary. A bag full of stuff they don't need or want will just be trashed, and you have no way of knowing what they need.

Re: Global Debt Time Bomb explodes soon

Debt is an extension of credit, unrelated to whether or not a country's currency is fiat or backed by one, or a basket of, commodities. What we have is an income to expense ratio problem. Or more accurately millions of piss poor decisions that keep accumulating in a bigger and bigger pile. Fiat, or ...

Re: Global Debt Time Bomb explodes soon

At this point it's simply damned if you do, damned if you don't. IMO Greece staying or leaving will only have an effect on the timeline, not the outcome. My only questions are how long can the train stay on its track and how bad the crash is going to be.

Re: Sleeping Pads - what do you guys use?

Warm weather is a hammock, cold I use an Exped DM 7. I don't function well at all without good sleep and both of these give it to me. Thinking about picking up a Neoair Trekker just to try out even though I don't really need it.

I'd personally like to see a themed contest along the lightweight, minimalist line. See if someone can come up with a well equipped 30 lb bag, or make do with only the bare basics. Warm weather would be the best time for something like that.
