Thaks for all of the advice. I'm not a fan of camping when it is really cold either Gringo. Guess it is the southern boy in me.Thanks for the suggestion of the KAQ. I had not heard of them. I have been lurking for awhile and based on what I have heard decided on my hammock and tarp. This is the last bit of equiptment I have yet to decide on since it seems I need an UQ of some kind. Inexpensive is better but I have learned not to trade quality for price.
