    Plenty cold enough for sure! But I'm glad the low temps showed up; it really seems as though most everyone was prepared for those kind of temps at the low end, and managed to sleep well. Good thing...

    Same here. I use my tarp to gage. I can go quite a bit longer depending on how high I can set the tree straps, but need to give the tarp some leeway on both ends.

    I really love the way the NoNet takes advantage of any breeze. I have a small shady woods area in my yard and if there is any breeze at all, I can beat the heat with the NoNet.:thumbup:
