I have a few questions about DIY. I posted it under general hammock talk, but thought here might be better.
1. Was thinking about a DIY UQ. Was thinking about using a mummy sleeping bag (long) and cut a hole in the foot for the hammock, peapod style. Was thinking about this, before I found this site and saw a few who tried.
2. Any idea how warm it would be using a -15 bag?
3. Would I need to add something under the bag to help hold it up/protect it. Was thinking that if I made a tarp with silnylon, I could order extra for this. Just hem the seams add shock cord to pull tight.
4. When using a DIY tarp, do you run the seam length wise (with the hammock)? or across the hammock. Speer has an excellent article and pics on how to sew the seam.
