Ah, I can't wait until spring. But by then I should be on my second hammock. I have every intention of picking up a WL Night Owl, but I just ran across the $20 GT "el cheapo" special online again.
I'm ordering one this week - I'll try to set it up indoors for a virgin hang, then if the weather warms up any, I may try it outdoors. I do have a pad, space blanket, -5 degree sleeping bag, and the tarp off my tent - I might just be able to get away with it.
