    Test Hang 3.2

    Hey peeps...just getting ready for another test hang in the backyard
    tonights low will be 20 degree and there calling for 6 inch of snow...should be a blast

    test setup is a
    WB traveler DBL 1.7
    Yeti 3 season(on loan from Ful )
    JRB 10x11 tarp
    JRB Hudson river(long)
    Camp cloths under my foot end
    Small pad

    as you can see in the pics i'm all set up...
    i also took the idea of putting a small pad in my quilt foot box...this seems to work nice..cause the pad moves with you and there is no need to re-ajust all the time ..i have my down vest and my Ski pants in the layers of the hammock for some added warmth for my legs
    and a pic of me...yes..i was born with CCF for skin

    will let you all know how the test run goes in the morning

    My hammock's up but only little snow tonight. Our accumulation is coming tomorrow. I'm hoping to sleep outside both nights. You look a little blue. Cheer up you're sleeping in a hammock tonight!
