Had heavy frost this A.M. I used a bib in front of my face and pulled up the sides that left about 2 inches of space from the bottom of the hammock. NO condensation in the sock, but the bib was saturated. I'm going to use the bib and not worry anymore. Was 23 outside and 40 inside - at 3 A.M. When I got up at 5:30 it was still 40* inside the sock. I watched the steam burn off the sock when the sun came up. Awesome.
I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, "I'm going to mop the floor with your face." I said, "You'll be sorry." He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?" I said, "Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well."
