Myles from Oz
Hi all, just sayin' g'day now that I've got myself a WBBB and have given it a test run.
Spent 4 days touring on my bike to Mt Walsh National Park in Queensland Australia. It rained a lot and I'm seeing the big advantage of hanging instead of sleeping on the ground.
WBBB DL 1.1 with a WB Large Tarp. Just using a regular Thermarest Prolite 4 mat and a very light sleeping bag as a top quilt. Very comfortable sleep and being able to hang on the side of a hill where a tent just would not go was great.
Looking forward to some stealth camping with this setup.
when your down sydney way be intouch eh.
Great looking campsites!
I am envious of your weather right now... Most folks here in the US seem to be set up for winter camping, but I'm not. :D
Welcome to Hammock Forums. Good luck w/ your Stealth Hanging plans.
Yah, for sure, thats a couple of nice looking sites to hang. Welcome.
Will do HitchHiking.
Welcome to the forum and the hanging gang... Nice pics... Summer for you... guess it seems odd reading of all our preps to stay warm... take notes, you'll need some of the warm info about the time our Spring warms up... ;)
Welcome to HF! Thanks for the intro and photos!
Have been lurking for a while and still can't decide what I'll need for our 'cold'. 40 F would be about the coldest it will get. I think I'll just try it with the Thermarest and a warmer SB or quilt and see how it goes. Probably just wear more clothes if it gets too cold?

myles, when it comes to what you will need for insulation, it's sort of a trial and error thing. You're right to start with the TR and/ SB or quilt- then take it from there. Wind plays a big role in this area too. What would normally keep you warm and toasty in calm winds, can really leave you shivering when wind is added into the picture.

It's an adventure.... and if I'm really honest, it's a never-ending one! :laugh:
