Thanks for sharing.

Regarding the eating in the tent. A cheap tarp makes a good rain cover for a dining room. Bugs sometimes, not always, get very bad at dusk, but go away shortly after dark when it gets colder. I can't be bothered to wait that long though; I just use DEET, and try not to ingest too much of it.

PackPaker's Pantry Jamaican Chicken, I'll bring some along for my next trip.

Thanks again.

bear hang suggestion - tie a short rope to the bottom and loosely tie this off at night. In the a.m. just pull the bag to you as you lower the main rope. we had a similar hang once and we were mighty proud of it too and took photos like we'd hunted large game.

Thanks for the videos. I may bring my videocamera on my my next solo.

Eating in the tent? I would rather eat bugs with my rice than risk attracting a bear to my tent.

I once hung my food off the side of a cliff. Easiest bear hang ever. Yours looked great.
