Cardboard/paper as insulation?
I'm about to purchase a Hennessy Backpacker Ultralight A-Sym. Since I'm a bycicle tourer I'm going to "camp" on urban/suburban areas most of the times. I'll carry the 4-season shelter system with me, the thin Underpad and a space blanket: should keep me warm enough on most nights, but if the temperature drops I'd rather take advantage of what's available nearby than carry an extra pad...
has anybody tried this system already and can tell its effectiveness/drawbacks? for instance, could the edge of a cardboard cut on the hammock if used INSIDE the hammock?
if there's a will, there's a way
cardboard from things shipped from china in the softest. thicker the corrugation the warmer (jump on it to soften it up). bubble wrap is good. carpet pieces or pad from a carpet place or construction dumpster. :) a hammock would of been cool under the boardwalk:D
