Picture from Peak1 Web Site

I do still have a tent - A Peak1 Aries tent. Its a double wall two person tent that sets up in about 5 minutes and has plenty of room. It's stayed dry through hard rainstorms, just make sure you vent it well

10.6 Poncho/Tarp Tarps have great versatility, they can be set up in a variety of ways depending on the location, weather, and needs. To set up a tarp I usually use my custom Moonbow tarp/poncho. If your interested in once, contact Moonbow. Use some light nylon string to suspend it between trees or using hiking poles. All you need is about 6 stakes, some cord, and a pole or two. I use a small piece of plastic as a ground cloth and my hiking poles as supports. Bad for bugs since I don't own a net yet.  An interesting point is that Earl Schaffer (first AT thru hiker) abandoned his tent for a poncho shelter early in his long walk.
0.8 4 mini carabineers and 12' string Good for food bagging, clothes line, etc. I removed the inside strings to make it a little lighter, and the cord is still strong enough for what I need.
3.0 6 stakes 6 aluminum gutter nails to serve as stakes.
