DTE, all in all I don't regret these learned lessons.... They were expensive in wasted money trying to save a buck or find a cheap and often light answer....all in all I logged at least a dozen cold nights when the above ideas failed in the field, which was almost always when Mother Nature turned much nastier than forcasted and /or much nastier than my back yard test conditions.
On behalf of myself, and I’ll presume to speak for others here, thanks to you and your fellow hanging pioneers for making the mistakes you did, and allowing me to “learn from the mistakes of others”.
You have all undoubtedly saved me many uncomfortable nights.
The harder I work, the luckier I get.
