What! You're younger than I by a couple years and I still do two-week solo backpacking treks when ever She Who Must Be Obeyed lets me off the chain.Brewdude":9rtrmi36 said:
I've done a fair amount of winter packing in the past, even into the Porkies, as GMF mentioned. I can't X-country ski, but am pretty good on snow shoes. My skiing friends would lay down the track and I trudge along behind pulling my pulk. Unless the terrain was too steep, I could pull 120 lbs easier than pack 40 lbs.
However, I've yet to hammock camp in winter, but have done some in summer. I see from your pix that you've got an outside insulator bag below the hammock. That's the first mistake people make in cold weather, crushing the dead air insulation between their bodies and the hammock.
