    Like your article. All part of picking the correct camp site. Well phrased for the inexperienced. A good remind to us "old sourdoughs".

    Thank you so much! Lots of great advice. I need advice about how to mark this as a favorite. I tried the FAQs with no luck.
    BTW, I made my whoopie slings with a hot color for the head (orange) and a cool color (blue) for the feet, so that I can easily orient my hammock the way I want to. (I'm using snake skins.) The color coding really makes things easy!

    Makes Sense, but does not make Cents. $700 seems way too steep. My 20 degree bag $200, and generic air pad $20 do plenty. I am a car camper with AWD. I get as far as the National Forest Roads will take me. I have been comfortable down to 35F and don't see a reason to go camping if it gets colder than that. I sleep / wear merino wool. Ibex clothing is top notch gear www.ibex.com . You can comment that it is expensive gear, but I can do more than sleep in it. Looks good out on the town, and does not leave the funk of polyester dri-fit. Could the old coot be sippin too much whiskey before bed time. Those night sweats could be a sign of cancer (serious). Honestly, I would love your setup, but it is budget prohibitive. Not every camper has got discretionary funds like the OP.

    This post seems to be misplaced from another thread...It has nothing to do with the article about techniques...

    Well written article. As a hammock newbie it helped me to understand the use of under quilts year round and site selection - using the winds to my advantage.

    Thank you!
