    I always have a pair of earplugs in a small mesh pocket inside my sleeping bags. They're there if too loud rain, wind, birds or rivers keep me up. Most of the time I don't need it.

    10c? That sounds terrible.
    Synthetic for indoor use should work just fine, and it will be cheaper.
    Down will compress better for trips but since you are stationary, synthetic should work fine.

    Well. To be honest. I drink beers around the campfire. Therefore I pee. But I do pee more frequently when hammocking. Just not entirely sure why.
    Kidney theory sounds interesting.

    could you share an image of the aftermath? Of the loops, not your butt. Although hugeass bruises are entertaining, I'm more interested in seeing what failed. I too have those loops.
