1) Tents – The conventional way I have been accustomed to and I like it for maybe mountaineering.

2) Bivy – Never tried it.

3) Hammocks – We are trying this out, and I find it intriguing. The idea that one can just string up and bam you are done…sort of.

4) Sleeping bags: 3 season, 4 season or Multiple layer? 


So many choices. I like the idea of liquid gas and propane. I would like a refillable is0pro canister but the only one that is remotely similar to that a 1 lb refillable propane tank. I do not like the idea of wasting canisters nor refilling canisters as they are not intended to be refilled.
