the wife-e-poo and i drove down to fernandina bch fl to visit her sis and broNlaw. had a superior time with great folks in a really cool place.
we stayed 6 nights with sis and 4 of those nights, i was a hanging on their deck.
this was the 1st chance i've had to hang in mild temps (bought my hammock for Christmas 2010). i have been very comfortable during 20* nights with pad 0*bag and fleece garments. nite temps in fl. hovered around 47-50 and breezy, very comfortable w/ pad and 40*bag. the 3rd night temp rose to about 57 and some rain dropped in. i was comfortable under my superfly w/doors closed (12" bottom air gap) but, i must have been perspiring because i woke up with a small puddle on the pad, though i didn't feel sweaty?
i may try a fleece throw instead of the ccf pad?
i don't own an UQ yet which may allow the adjust-ability to prevent spring time puddles?
What a fine, fine spot to hang!!!! Get some boiled pea-nuts and sweet tea and get into some extreme lolly-gagging!!!!!!!!

Looks like a great place to be. I wish I was in a little farther south right now. I'm beyond done with the snow and ice!!!
That's a really cool setup. Glad you had fun in those nice cool winter nights.
Boiled peanuts??? Great looking spot flatline. It's -4 here, snowing and no end in sight to winter. I have envy!!
Oh yes ...an essential to a good lolly-gag down South. Boiled Peanuts

One warning the locals will not pass on because :rolleyes: "Well... everybody already knows that... :rolleyes:
Yea... I thought that and did not warn my new wife (25 years ago) :scared:
about the fact that if you eat too many you will NOT need any ex-lax. :confused::scared:
She ate about a pound they were sooo good!:lol::lol::lol:
The boiled peanuts will take care of that for you. :lol::lol::lol:
Had boiled peanuts at Christmas while in Georgia - umm umm good! I had almost forgotten how good they are.
Flatline, that is a perfect hangin' spot - deck on one side, nature on the other. Good for you for taking advantage of it!
