When on a short trip, I have a few luxuries my husband and I divy up and take.... 1) a proper book 2) UL hammock 3) butt cushion 4) pour over coffee

 

NOTHING BEATS LAYING IN ONE'S HAMMOCK WITH COFFEE AND A BOOK AFTER A LONG DAY OF HIKING!!!  However it does add extra lbs...  personally - worth every extra drop of sweat and extra ounce of energy.  Plus - butt cushion to sit on while eating dinner....super luxurious!
