    Cool Backyard Gear Test / Hang

    It is time...

    I just got some new gear, including a wonderful Winter Yeti and some new tarp stakes, and the time has come to try them out.

    Gear:
    Byer Amazonas Hammock
    Kelty Noah 9
    Poncho Liner as Overcover (if necessary)
    Moonstone Delta Minima 20* sleeping bag as top quilt
    Fleece Bag liner (if necessary)
    Winter Yeti
    Thermarest Z-Lite folded in half under my feet and legs

    Conditions:
    Cloud Cover: 70-90%
    Chance of Precipitation: 30-50% (calling for snow tomorrow afternoon)
    Expected Low: 31*

    Expected Results:
    As warm as can be and loving my new gear.

    That's the plan. I'll update with pics this afternoon after I set everything up, and then give a morning report.
    Be like Bob

    My prediction is a warm comfortable nights sleep.
