...and second ever proper hang, presented in glorious over exposed mobile phone pictures! I apologise for the low quality here; if I'd realised how badly my phone would do outside I'd have taken a better camera.

A friend and I headed out to a local patch of woodland, not too far away from home in case it got too chilly for us. Forecast was for around 4C (39F) but I'm afraid I couldn't tell you for sure what the actual temperature was in the end because my thermometer displayed 12C (54F) consistently over both days: morning warm midday and midnight. I suppose that's possible but I think equipment failure is more likely!
Equipment for me was a DD Hammocks Frontline with DD 3x3m tarp, whoopie sling suspension with tree straps from (terrible) stock DD webbing. Insulation from a cheap foil backed CCF mat and an ancient borrowed down bag.
For my friend, on his very first hang ever (never even in the garden!), it was the DD Travel with stock suspension and DD XL 4.5x3m tarp. Insulation from a cheap self inflating mat and a 10C synthetic bag.
Pitching took over an hour in the end thanks to most of the kit being completely new to us (ie whoopie slings and no ridgeline for me, everything for my friend)
The night was a little chilly for me, but toasty warm for my friend and fabulously comfortable for both of us.
Any critique (about the hanging; there's no hope for my photography skills) would be welcome; I'm very new to this!
