2020.10 - Superior Hiking Trail

Tettegouche SP > Bean/Bear > Split Rock Lighthouse https://www.alltrails.com/explore/map/map-5f8e2fa--43 01 Oct - 03 Oct Fr 29-43 Sa 29-45 Su 28-46 On trail at sunrise each day. Summary: Everything was awesome. Trail wear: Perfect. Lightheart Gear Skirt, compression boxer-briefs, 2 layers of leggings, synthetic LS warmth shirt with synthetic SS sport-tek, injinji toe socks and trail socks. Enough variation in layers to easily add/remove to regulate heat. No blisters, no hot spots, no chaffing, no annoying seams, no annoying belt. Sleep wear: same as trail wear, but with fresh socks. Warmth layers: EB fleece, and a puffy. Generally wearing the EB when starting out, but shed after ~30 minutes. Added the puffy when off-trail/in-camp. Wore hat for camp/sleep, and starting out, but usually off within ~30 minutes. Sleep system: Hammock, with UQ and TQ. Worked perfectly. Never used: Second hat, rain gear, full second-set of clothes, sleep shorts/shirt. Can't really purge anything here, because it's all just-in-case stuff. Next-time Improvements: - Add down booties for sleep, for colder temperatures - Add a second hankie for filtering water - Add personal bear line. I shared with others. - Add inline charcoal filter for water. Wow, this was awesome!
