Thank you guys for posting. It's all extremely helpful.
I do own a Gregory z30 pack. I'm afraid it's not big enough or maybe I should learn to pack things in better. I think I can make an overnight trip with it but I'm not sure I could fit 2 days into it.
I've was looking into Clark Hammocks but the price is a bit steep for me at the moment. I've fallen back to looking at the Hennessy Asym Hammock.
I tend to go a little overboard when it comes to first aid, if there is such a thing. I've even consider taking a class in "backcountry first aid". I believe in Murphy's Law.
Now that I have a general idea of the things I need to take with me, what are the things you wouldn't leave without? The frisbee idea is great. Wouldn't have thought of that one. It always seems to be the little things that you forget and that i want to avoid if possible.
