Re: maps

great tips- i never considered Powells. i'm not terribly map-literate, and need one for the timberline trail, specifically. not too eager to rely on phone. i might print one from the sites provided. stopped by REI in clackamas yesterday and their selection was pretty thin. thanks!

Re: sleeping pads

thanks for all the tips. i picked up a used thermarest 48" - not sure about the model- for $30, just to get me by until i can donate enough plasma to earn enough for an expensive, light, comfy pad. :lol:

hammock camping on timberline trail

couple of us doing the timberline trail in mid august. I'm primarily set up for hammock camping. trees? maybe a silly question, but i really don't know. i'd hate to get out there and wish i'd swapped it out for my tent, or even a ground mat and tarp.

thanks

sleeping pads

so my next question is: sleeping pads. my 20yr old therm-a-toss-and-turn finally bit it with an unpatchable ember hole. fast forward to now, and they've changed! ultralight? $200? what the heck? i'm trying to go semi-ultralight with my gear. like everyone else, i'm looking for the best affordable de...
