This is just my second hang in my new WBBB. I was with my roomate and a few tent campers as well. Before I post the pics here are a few things I learned:
1) Could have had my tarp angles steeper due to the cold
2) Could have brought my tarp lower to the ground due to the cold and wind protection
3) Seems to me the trees closer to the 12ft range were easier for adjusting your hammock as long as your tarp fits the gap. This was due to being able to hang the suspension lower and thus having it more easily adjustable on the shorter tree gap.
The deeper you bury snow anchors the longer it will take you to dig them out
4) Reflectix is awesome
We had gotten over a foot of snow in the last couple of weeks, so I intended it to be snowy. I did not intend for there to be this much snow! We hardly got into the campsite with my Subaru and had to wait for the snow to soften up in the morning on the way out. Other than that we had a great time. Daytime temps were around 35-45, and I am guessing night got down to low 20's or teens.
The biggest hassle was trying to find dry wood in the deep snow. Thankfully we had most of the afternoon to get set up and were able to put together a nice camp. We also spent plenty of time building snow walls, as we did not know how windy it would get that night.
For insulation we both used DIY underquilts made out of sleeping bags with shock cord (Have my HG Phoenix 20 on order!), a reflectix sleeping pad, and sleeping bags (HG burrow 20).
Here are the Pics:

Now for my roomates Hennessy setup:
What a snow wall!

Hope you all enjoy checking out the pics as much as I liked the hang!
