Great report. I agree about sleeping warm and cold. If you're acclimated to sleeping w/o heat you should have a head start on staying warm in a hammock. Lucky you!
Some fog may not noticeably wet your gear, but sometimes the rolling fog wets everything around...even the underside of tarps, hammocks, sleeping bags, etc. I've woken up pretty wet a few times in Charleston, SC, and Monterey, CA. But I still get paranoid if I feel even a little bit of fog on my face at night! Haha...
My cat comes running when I get in the hammock. She loves it.
And it's a good thing your neighbors are used to you acting insane. That happens when you start testing gear, so it sounds like you have a head start on that, too.
