Heading out once my coffee is finished to camp at a nearby state park. Bringing no tent this time, just my hammock. Having said that, well, "just my hammock" still carries a lot of stuff - underquilt, skeeter net - which may not be needed now that the temps have fallen some, sleeping bag because I don't yet have a top quilt. Tarp. Looking at the gear I've packed I know I've overpacked, but that's part of the test. What will I use, and what will just come along for the ride. I'm a truck camper, not a hiker, so weight really is not an issue, but I want to narrow down what I NEED from what I think I need. Oh, a few items are wants - a couple carving tools, cigars, my juice (Body Armor bottles, no "energy" additives). Going only with packaged food, turkey in a can, instant taters, etc. Also, as I sat to write this I noticed my camera and the journal from @gohammergo on my DR table/desk/indoor work bench. (Thanks, again, John!) Can't fully do this without taking pics of what I'm doing, and writing down what I do and why/how. I'll add to this when I get back, perhaps late tomorrow or Thursday (although it might be later - Thurs is a work day and organ practice and playing for Church that night). But I will show what I've done and welcome comments/critiques/suggestions. I still feel really new at this, at least the "take what I need, a couple comfort items, and that's all. It's hard as I don't hike to locations, but someday I might. Following Shug's advice from videos and practicing this trip. If things go south on me (and I don't expect them to) I've got the truck, and home is less than an hour away.
