I woke up to snow hitting me in the face. It was a really light snow that was able to blow up into my hammock because my tarp had loosened up while I was asleep. I make a mental note to make tarp tensioners and go out to tighten the tie-outs, cursing weather.com and their 30% prediction of snow under my breath. Once the tarp is tightened, I didn't have any more problems with snow getting in. I listen to the wolf howls and manage to catch a bit more sleep.
It has gotten noticeably colder when I wake up again. I checked my thermometer to find that the temperature dropped to 7 degrees! A far cry from the 22 I was expecting and too cold for Frankenpad. I slept a bit, but for the most part spent the rest of the night trying to stay warm and dealing with the condensation issues the tarp was giving me. I was happy to see the sun rise when it came. .........
You did 7F with a thin pad, and survived? Impressive! I'm glad you don't have to change your name to Frozen Butt Stephen!
Well, you are learning by doing!
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
