    Wink Hammock Camping In Georgia This weekend

    I am hiking the Georgia section of the AT this coming week, starting Saturday. I am trying to figure out if I need a sleeping bag?
    I am using a Therm-a-rest Z so lite mattress, which has been a great insulator so far, but just curious as to what others use?
    Can I get away with just using a blanket?
    Thanks

    Hmmm...I'd assume the "worst"...I was shocked 2 weeks ago at a cold snap at Hawk Mountain. I was okay with my quilts but the previous 2 nights I never used my top quilt at all because it was so warm. You just never now up in them thar hills. May run into you...I'll be out there somewhere.

    Lows are going to be in the 50s. I don't find a fleece blanket warm enough for those conditions. YMMV, of course.
