Gathering info here to setup a first time summertime overnight.
I am a lifelong afternoon nap hammock user. We are ready to take the leap.
Do not want to rush to purchase some of the gear we have already chosen for our wishlist.
Want to adapt current gear for the summer. Then get or DIY UQ in fall. (perhaps the Speers Snugfit )
The pad as fairly inexpensive isolation is intriguing.
Do not want to have it inside the hammock. Figuring a plan to make a eva UQ.
We have a 4'x8'x1/4" eva foam slab/sheet. ( as a travel mat for our large old dog. )
about $17 or $18 (at BJ's, like Coscos )
Best-Step brand, www.venture-products.com
Currently car tent camping. Therefore we have many choices of gear.
Summer in the Catskills Mts NY can be very hot or get into the forties.
We go prepared, but leave the downsleepingbags at home ( used only as cover even in the spring&fall ).
We have two 4'x6' bedroom down throws ( lightweight ).
Two one layer polartech-like sleepingbags with zipper.
A fullbed-size polartech blanket and queensize.(plus queensize airmattress ).
Had expected to tie cord+carabiner at the corners and hang one or more of those as an UQ.
Then while reading here began thinking about a evaUQ.
Knowing that in the future at least one of us may join friends to bicycle or kayak camping&hanging
do not want to rush to buy gear that may not be the best choice for either of those.
One or both of us are going to sleep overnight in the hammocks next month.
If anyone has experience or thoughts about eva UQ laced into shape it would be appreciated.
