Having done my share of night hiking, I don't believe that was a contributor. If we had arrived two hours earlier, we would have had two more hours of being in the elements. Everyone got up shortly after daybreak. Had we retired proportionately to our arrival time, that could have put us in a hammock for close to twelve hours or we would have gotten up a couple of hours before daylight.
