Can I use only a Hammock on Great Divide route?
« on: December 03, 2017, 05:08:32 pm »
Im gearing up from scratch for a summer 2019 trip from North to South on the Great Divide Route from Banff to Mexico.  Im wondering if a hammock will leave me stranded above the treeline or in the New Mexico Desert?  Any advice from anyone who has used a hammock on this route, or if you have done the route and have first hand knowledge of whether is will work or not?

Thanks

I think you need to have a plan for what you will do if your camp site does not have something for you to string your hammock from.
Just like you need to have a plan for what  you will do if it rains, gets cold, or other reasonable events.
