    Ready for action. Setup includes GoalZero fan, USB gooseneck cable and previously owned USB power bank. The plan is to insert setup into ridgeline organizer. Thanks HandyRandy for the fan...

    I appreciate the input. Good suggestion about the backup set of lines.

    I see the essential problem as that I ended up on the ground on a cold, rainy evening in winter and it doesn't really matter...

    vsiddhartha - Iíve been impressed with the responses given and I think itís astute of you and others to consider carrying a backup CCF (perhaps torso length) pad for hammock winter treks. Thatís...

    Hove64 thanks for reviving this forum thread for "Hot Weather Hammock Camping", started in 2010. It's very similar to a new thread I just started titled "Looking for suggestions to hammock camp in...

    Thanks a bunch FloridaHanger for your thorough post! Being a Floridian hammock camper makes you especially qualified to weigh in. I just had a flashback of my living in South Florida for 8 years and...

    Just ordered the GoalZero fan from the Scheels' website. I'll look into the hangtime hook or I might buy one of the metal gooseneck USB cables to support the fan when it's plugged into the USB...

    Also HandyRandy I noticed the price for the GoalZero plus shipping is quite high on places like Amazon and OEM site.

    Thanks HandyRandy for this input. Youíve provided excellent advice in several earlier threads regarding ridge line fans. Iíll probably stick with the GoalZero fan you recommended. Any advice on...

    Thanks for the recommendation. I like the built-in goose neck feature and affordable price. Some of the other USB fan options would require purchasing the goose neck accessory separate from the fan.

    I'll continue to develop the attached checklist as I have more time to research. Thanks to all for their input/tips.

    Happy to report testing has begun with heat index near 100F. Have the fan at foot end on low speed and have wet cotton sheet on top. So far so good. More reporting will be forthcoming.

    Unfortunately, my test will have to wait until later in the week as I didn't realize DFW is under Ozone Action Day status due to high levels of ozone air pollution.

    The mental image of doing hot yoga definitely seems worse than what Iím trying to tackle with the overnight hammock adventure in extreme temps. My hats off. I think Iíll stick to mimicking the...

    I think you just gave the encouragement I needed to try this "Egyptian sleep method" for myself and fellow hammockers. The current temperature where I'm located is 99F with heat index 112F. Tonight...

    I'm with you tstark, I've also always abstained from camping in these summer months as well. And each year this time rolls around I go crazy and drive my immediate family crazy from feeling stuck. In...

    Thanks OneClick I agree that 2lbs (not including battery) seems absurd. I figured the jobsite fan idea probably wouldn't pass muster with the lightweight backpacking crowd which I'm part of. Thanks...

    Yes, I'm seeing these rechargeable job site fans weigh between 2-5 pounds which is very heavy for backpacking. However, in my case, I don't mind carrying that weight for out and back trips where I...

    Thanks for the recommendations. I'll definitely add them to a doc I'm creating that has all the other incoming recommendations. I'll eventually attach the doc to this thread.

    Yes, when I posted this thread, the idea of getting tips and tricks for dealing with the extreme heat was first and foremost in my mind. I was in the camp that basically has written off the summer...

    Thanks for helping me brainstorm. Yes, expanding my driving radius is definitely one solution. Just pulled up LBJ Grasslands and the OK locations on my weather app and it looks like those areas are...

    That's a good one! I'll add it to some of my other favorite expressions that include "rub some dirt on it" and "suck it up". I knew this post would come across as a brooding session and not gain...

    I'm already doing enough of that vicarious living stuff. Where would we be without Shug entertainment? :cool:

    Thanks for the suggestions on the various USB fans. I think those would be good in mild heat but I don't think they will cut it in extreme temps. I'm eyeing the Ryobi 18V P3320 fan, suggested earlier...

    When I started this thread I was recalling a miserable night I spent out on Lake Texoma where the hammocking part at night was actually the worst part. This wasn't even the hottest time of summer. I...

    I live in North Texas and in the summer months between June to September I typically refrain from hammock camping due to extreme high heat and humidity. As a result I get cabin fever and a sense of...

    I too bought the same hammock and deem it a nice economy choice as bobamos pointed out in this thread. I snagged it for just over $11 on Vipon when there was a price drop and my 9 year old daughter...
