    First night out! Wish me luck!

    Well I got the WBBB1.1Dbl, COGS Hex tarp, and Wooki 20 Degree all set up out back. Going to grab a 0 degree bag, hat, warm sleeping clothes, and head out back soon! Wish me luck! First time setting up the whole thing and hanging. Figured, might as well fire it up and see what happens!! It's 35 here in Maine right now and might go to 25 tonight. Hope I make it all night toasty warm. Pix tomorrow and update on how it went. I had to swear that if I got cold and had to come in that I would curl up in the heated throw in front of the woodstove for an hour before I jumped in bed.

    Good luck. I set mine up earlier today when the sun was out and it was nearly 70. I was going to sleep out and after watching the forecast I quickly abandoned it and I'm glad I did. We've had nearly 3" of rain and now we are under a flash flood warning and a wind advisory. One of my best decisions in a while. Good luck and do report back.

    Good luck, stay warm, and don't mind a little fiddling with the new gear. That's part of the fun!

    SUCCESS!!! Looks like I'm good to 30 degrees! I had two minor issues. One was I believe I need an Official Shug Square of Foam Sheet to put under my BUTTOCKS as a got a little cool right there but nothing to fret about. The other thing was the trees I hung from were a bit far apart I think, so I really needed to raise my straps up another foot I suspect which would have fixed the calf ridge I had. What do you think? That might have fixed my cool buttocks too. Lol! Regardless, I slept from 10pm until 5am nice and toasty!! Thank you all for your help and advice shared with everyone! Now the pix, as If There Ain't Pix, It Didn't Happen!!!

    Hum... That Wooki 20 should have worked down to 30. Was it windy?
