Arrived home yesterday from a week with 47 scouts at scout camp. Having brought my hammock, tarp and Phoenix, I still spent the first night on a cot having run out of time from a long day of travel and camp set-up. Sidebar - Temps were mid 90's during the day, high 60's at night. For the first night, Using just a sheet and a fleece bag I was cold, even after donning my fleece jacket and the wool blanket (walked back to the car to get).
I knew the problem and it was confirmed by setting up the hammock w/ UQ for night #2. Not wanting to take the risk, I threw in the wool blanket and fleece jacket and place on the shelf so that I could get to them if needed. Not needed, I was so comfortable with the Phoenix that using only the fleece bag (as TQ) was sufficient.
Having one last doubt thinking that the temps were higher on night 2, I pulled the UQ up the line to create a gap and immediately felt the rush of cool air under the hammock. I'm diggin' my HG Phoenix.
No longer needing the wool blanket, I gave it to a young scout who had a miserable night's sleep. His dad was also present and thought he might double up the blanket and put on top of him. "Nay, said I. Put it underneath him." Problem solved - one happy scout.
FYI, that first night in the hammock was the best night of sleep I've ever had at a scout camp. The Phoenix is a great piece of equipment.
