    I use my down jacket under my head in the winter. I'm pretty sure my head spends most of the night off of the UQ. Never been cold.

    When car camping, it's the cast iron dutch oven and tripod. We cook all sorts of great meals in there.
    The one that goes on every trip is my coffee press. I like my good coffee in the morning.

    Be careful with a silnylon undercover. It won't allow moisture to escape, so you could end up lying in a puddle by morning.

    On my Hennessy I removed the stock suspension and added whoopies. On my wifes and sons I tied a knot in the suspension right above the hammock, and attached whoopies to that. Both work quite well.

    I think the Explorer is made in China. We have two of them. Been using them for almost 4 years now. There is very little noticeable wear on them, and they get used a lot, 30 to 60+ times a year.
