    Good on ya.
    I love the Roan!!!!

Very dream like to walk along the trails at night, although the shadows start to play games with your mind at times. We left the tarp in the Snake Skins so we could watch the moon travel across the sky. I'm glad others got out to enjoy the beautiful Minnesota winter night.

    You'd need a bit more cold medicine for that, methinks.

    Nice report Shug. I've had trouble with my UQ sagging as well, will have to do HappyCamper's mod to add some shock cord for even more tweaking. Thanks for the report and all the "Noob" videos. Glad you're having fun with it!

    Yeah ... would not want those worms in there.....!!!!
    I added tabs on the side of my Winter Yeti and will hook shock-cord to the ridgeline. Just a hook so I can get it off easy.
    Do not want a CB in serious cold ....... goes right through ya'. Do not want a pad under me .... a sure fix but I will resist.

    Would it make a difference if the pad was inside the yeti but outside the hammock, or inside the hammock with you?

    ah! that makes sense- I was thinking more of the 'feel" of the pad being inside/outside of the hammock. Thanks much! KM

    Love the idea of the shock cord for the pullouts on the tarp!

    Always worth while to watch a "Shug of the Frozen North" video!!
