Righto I would really like to go for a quick overnight run this weekend. (remember I'm in Australia and we are leading into summer here)
Problem is I have no top quilt other than an old heavy synthetic bag that probably weigh's 12 kg's and roll's up to about the size of a small cow.......
My proper TQ's are in transit from the US and may or may not arrive in time for the weekend, I'm really hoping they will. (Hammock gear 3 S Crowsnest and Burrow )
The only designated hammock insulation I have at hand now is a summer 3/4 TeWa UQ which I know works well down to about 8 C for me. (with a proper TeWa summer TQ though, which I have sent back to the US for some more down in it)
The temps for the weekend are for quite warm weather and lows of around 18 C
Question is how do you think I would go If I put on my thermal long johns and merino L/S top and just used a silk bag liner.
I could also take a small 3/4 length fleece throw which wouldn't take up much room. ??
I will also have a mont-bell short sleeve jacket, wind pants and a paclite goretex jacket to put on if required and a spare pair of socks.
Do you think it's do-able or should I just lug the big sleeping bag.....
(I'm normally a hot sleeper)
Any comments or experience appreciated.
You have to understand my wife, god bless her sole has issued me with a very very rare leave pass for the weekend.
You have no idea of the effort required to squeeze this out of her but I have it (not in writting yet though )
I'd really like to get a little walk (30km's) / camp in while I have the chance.
I'm not out to push myself to the temp limits etc, Just wanna be comfortable.
