Byron and I will be leaving for our 5 day hike on the Appalachian Trail in Vermont in 2 weeks! This weekend we worked on our sleep system for our hammock (our tent). Byron's grandmother is helping us make a down quilt to sleep with and an undercover for the hammock to keep us warm. I would like to say that I helped more with the project, but I mostly napped on the couch and helped stuff the quilt with down. This lil' baby is taking everything I've got.
This is a "tent-hammock" instead of using a ground tent. It's great for the environment and also makes it easy to find a place to camp in the woods. Never a shortage of trees! We purchased the Safari Deluxe model. It is largest and only model made for two people. It sure is cozy!
