I couldn't wait any longer
so I strung up my NX150 between the porch and a tree
it's about a 40' distance so it took a while to tweak it.
Dark - no photos - so I'll have to use a thousand words.
1: A fair amount of fiddling to get the Z-Liner installed,
but not difficult, nor to time consuming.
2: After laying for a stretch, I realized my head was to low and
acid reflux (AR) was going to be a big issue.
Got out and did an endo as that was the only solution this time.
Back in and getting comfy realized
that I had a cold spot
in about my middle right back area . . .
. . . thought . . . that is were my slip on shoes are/were
and getting them out to do the endo,
I had disturbed the one z-liner pad . . .
back out, to smooth the folded corner in the pocket.
Back in and comfy warm . . . temps outside were about 8c/46f at 21:00hrs
3: I was using my down-mummy bag open like a TQ
as I wished to be testing the z-liner w/out any lower help.
problem was that there was to much width to the open bag
which is normally narrow as a mummy.
I struggled with that a couple of times through the night.
I haven't made my DIY-velcro ginch yet,
so sliding down was the same issue as always but that is better than the AR alternative.
I was wearing socks/Dakota Drywear L-John and a full sleeve turtle neck type T-shirt, and a fleecy type block-heater (touque).
I had a real nice warm sleep,
I need some kind of pillow, only because the bed of the hammock is rather stiff like a board for my head.
I have noticed this each time.
Getting out to facilitate relief
I near-in-on froze my chest and back,
after getting back in it still took a while to warm up.
So it must have gotten much colder than I recorded at 21:00hrs
It may have been close to freezing
Yet no matter, I had a warm sleep . . . y-eeeea.
As time goes on and temps lower, I will try other hangs and Tweak.
I don't get much in the way of days on the trail,
so back yard trials are my opportunity to tweak and get it right,
for those times that I might get away . . .
