Superior Hiking Trail - Spring 2008

I had discovered lightweight camping, or so I thought.  Much more trial and error than I had originally planned on.  Here's me thinking that I could automatically become a lightweight backpacker.

I had bought I Hennessy Hammock Ultralight Explorer.  Little did I know when I bought it that you still need to bring a lot of insulation for underneath you for any temps below about 55F.  Fortunately I figured that out before my trip and went fairly prepared.  Unfortunately, having to bring all that extra insulation didn't really lighten my load as much as I wished it would, but looking at my picture, my pack looks WAY more comfortable on my back than the previous trip.
