First overnight fatpacking trip!

Last week I headed out and did a thirty mile passage of the Arizona trail. It was my first bikepacking trip and the longest mtb ride I've done since the 90s! Overall it was an awesome trip and I can't wait to go again. Here is a link to the blog post for this trip. Lots more pics and info if you'd like to have a look.

Nice, and, yes, an underquilt for the hammock makes a world of difference. You can also get wider pads or mod them to be wider at the shoulders, but it still detracts from the comfort of the hammock for me.
