Another welcome from York Pa
Welcome from York Pa. As a lurker you already know how great this forum and members are
2 summers ago I bought a Walmart Ozark Trail down SB and converted to TQ. Removed the hood and zipper and added down taken from a old coat. With all the work the TQ is only rated at about 40* at 22oz
7 night, first to Phoenix then Sedona next to Williams (Gr Canyon and Prescott) then back to Phoenix.
Thanks for the replies your stand is impressive its on my bucket list. Not that it needs it but how would you improve on it
If I got this right that's roughly 450.00 for 35 ft
Is this what you are using and its cost? Am I in the right ballpark
I saw these guys at the NRA Outdoor show. This is there website
Bought the ULA Multicam Circuit for Turkey hunting. Pa season doesn't open until May3 planning on hiking in night before and hanging.

How about a hang on the beach (Ocean City). You would need a hammock stand and I think you can only camp on Delaware beaches. Something different

Thanks Brad and Ipranal for your input. I'll keep stuffing
So the SB does have tubes? On some of the threads it was mentioned the foot box had more down at the bottom and in some areas the bag looked transparent
Purchased a Down Ozark SB and started adding down. It seems there isn't any chambers. I see the stitching and it looks like rows of chambers but when I open a section up I can move my hand all...

One of my DYI projects will be Snakeskins. Until then I had the tarp wrapped with ponytail bands. Once the tarp was unwrapped the wind became a problem. So I unwrapped half the tarp and staked out...
