Thanks for the nice report and photos. I noticed the bottom of your Prism appears to have some type of coating?
I came out of Grace Thursday, it was a bit damp!

Sounds like it was a great early season solo. And if it's gonna rain there is no better setup to sleep in than a hammock. It could pour buckets and you'd be dry. Thanks for posting.

We all have to believe in something. I believe I'll go paddle.

Thanks for your report. You mentioned the Sawbill solo set up. I'm curious what you were referring to. Any pictures that would highlight the set up?


Thanks,

Hammocks make for a simple camp setup, for sure. Wish I could sleep well in 'em. Thanks for the read. Have enjoyed my Prism -- with padded bucket seat.
