I think we've proven that temps are relatively easy to conquer in a hammock. It's the stormworthiness of a tarp vs a mountaineering tent that's still open to questioning. But at the same time, I wouldn't take a mountaineering tent into a winter storm unless I knew how to survive if it failed...I guess a hammock/tarp is just another version of which gear to know how to live without when the situation arises.
so what would ya do, pack up all your stuff and start walking back toward the car
? i guess you could dig a snow cave if there was snow.
