Test hang tonight
Tonight is my first test hang and what a night to hang. There are 22mph winds and the low tonight is around 35f.
Tarp- camo superfly
Hammock- eno doublenest
UQ- DIY insulate uq
I will be hanging in my small backyard, the fence will block most of the wind.
(photos to come)
hope it's a good one for you. Let us know how it goes.
That sounds like a hoot. Good luck with the wind in that setup.(is that a strong setup?)
I need to make a bugnet here before I can do the same.
It is very strong. One end is attached to a telephone pole and the other is on a DIY stand pole.
Looks like a good setup spot to be out of the wind. Have a peaceful, warm, and comfy evening. Will be looking for a report in the morning!
Have a great hang..
I like your set up.. Is the pole anchored to concrete? Man that is a very cool idea.
Expect to maybe be a bit restless the first time. Hope you comfy though.
The pole is on top of a piece of wood that has been routed out so that the pole won't slip, there are also two steel stakes going threw the wood into the ground. The support ropes are attached with rockbuster stakes.

Some people's first nights are not the greatest until they get things tweaked, other people's first nights they sleep right through so keep that in mind. Hope you have a good one!
Test hanging new equipment is nearly as fun as taking it out in the wild. Figuring out all the little things that make it fit you and your setup just right is always a fun task to me
