I'm heading out for some backpacking this weekend and after saturday night, it will be getting cold, around 10-15F° at night. Winds appear to be 20-30mph with gusts up to 40+mph. I'm pretty sure I can get out of the wind for the most part, but I'm starting to think about taking the tent instead of the hammock...after I've finished all my packing of course
My main concern is snow blowing up under the tarp and making a mess. Or thru the opening between doors on my BMJ. I may not be able to get the tarp all the way to the ground. NOT enough snow exists to build up walls. Although it would be handy I don't have a hammock sock, nor do I plan on adding one for the type/amount I do.
So this is just basically a "what would you do" to help me make up my mind in the short amount of time I have before leaving.
