    Full pack? Assume so since pretty much anything is doable with a day pack. A worse version of Kelly Knob is about right for that first climb out of Bly, though its longer and the footing is worse. ...

    I think this is relative to campground camping. Most of those tents have relatively stout floors, and usually only minimal flys to keep rain out. With likely going in and out regularly in those, I...

    Not necessarily wrong. I think his point is that you can hang a hammock where there are trees, so pretty much anywhere. So, yeah, he can't just stop anywhere in GSMNP to camp in the hammock. But...
