I met up with some guys Saturday morning to hike up Phelps Mountain near the Adirondack Loj. I didn't fancy a 4 hour drive starting at 6 in the morning so I decided to take Friday off work and drive up to the Loj, camp for the night and have breakfast at the Loj, giving me plenty of time to look around before the others arrived at 10 am.
I selected a nice sheltered site. I had my new Zeppelin 20 deg UQ, but to be safe I also hung my poncho liner under the UQ. There was no wind, I hung my tarp a little higher than in my backyard, but still pretty close and I closed off one end.
Still I could not get warm underneath! I would have though the poncho liner would help a little but it didn't. Everything else was fine, I was warm above, my toes, face, everything very snug, but I just couldn't get warm underneath. It wasn't so bad that I was shivering but just a noticeable presence. I slept but woke up several times in the night. At one time I got up to add another layer to my top which helped a little, I also got inside my sleeping bag instead of just draping it over me, which didn't help at all.
I checked the next day and it wasn't that cold, hit 20 in the middle of the night and may have got to 17 degrees F at around 7 which was about the time I got up. I don't know what I'm doing wrong, I pretty sure my UQ is snug, I can feel the shock cord pulling up the sides and I don't feel a gap when I shove my hand down inbetween the outside of the hammock and UQ. I never thought of myself as a cold sleeper either.
