Today, everything seemed to come together. My new hammock finally arrived and to be honest, it’s awesome. Warbonnet has made their light weight double layer hammock with 40D nylon on the outside and a soft comfortable 15D nylon on the inside. It is the lightest most comfortable hammock I’ve seen. I put all my lines and hardware on it today and it’s ready to go. I also am being reimbursed for shipping from USPS and WB because of the shipping delays!
I checked the moon phases and rise/set times today for the next month. There’ll be a full moon mid-hike and for the first half of my hike the moon sets late in the evening. That will make for nice night hiking if that’s in the stars. 😉
Tomorrow is packing day and then it’s off to the AT for my 6th section hike.
“The moon is a loyal companion. It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human. Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections.” ― Tahereh Mafi
