Chatooga. Oops slip of the fingers. Hope it didn't cause offence. You are welcome to use but remember to pay royalties when you do.
I was out with my scout troop last night and it was cooler, wet and rainy.
Hung nice and high and dry. My Hang Pad (That's what I am going to call it from now on, unless something better springs to mind - Brains Trust, suggestions are welcome.) was better tested as it was much cooler than the first time. I think it actually worked better than the first time. I didn't have any cold spots and, with just light tracksuit pants, a light T-shirt and a fluffy vest I slept very well. Pad stayed under me better - possibly because I have "broken the grain" of the Tyvek - and I just used my sleeping bag as a quilt.
They all thought I was crazy hammocking but a couple of the scouts said they were cold overnight but that could be that they weren't all that experienced as campers, too.
Also, going to have a spare carabiner on my pack so I can hang it from a tree as I saw suggested somewhere here. The rain made the fine soil stick to everything and my shoulder straps and waist belt on my Alice pack were damp and covered in sand this morning, despite a pack cover. I figure to hang it off my carabiner attached to the tree. At worst then I should only, maybe, get a slightly damp waist belt.
Out again in a fortnight. Will trial it then and see how it goes.
Yes, yes, yes. The pix are coming. They're taken but in my daughter's camera at the moment. Will try and download them tomorrow or so.....
