"Every day above ground is a good day"
furtigan- Glad there will be another Floridian freezing on the Trail this spring.
If you want to try the ENO/Trek Light style hammock, I'd be happy to help. I also have the Warbonnet if you like the idea of the bug netting being built-in to the hammock like the HH, but without the bottom entry.
Shoot me a PM if you're interested. When are you leaving?
As the mighty Grizz pointed-out to me, read the journals. If you do, you'll find several instances of hangers going to ground for one reason or another. Sometimes it's failure, sometimes it's cold, sometimes it's for other 'fun' reasons. A pad is going to make those evenings a little more bearable. Plus, you (or more correctly, I can) go a lot lower without much weight penelty with even a thin pad. For all those reasons, I now carry a pad. I'm still ashamed, so I hide it inside my pack.
cannibal, i slept out last night with your uq, it was 12* at 11 pm, and 9* at 5am, i supplemented with the 1/8" ccf, and was warm. i could have gone lower.
Here's a chart of symbols and the codes that can be used to create them. Use the 'code' in the decimal column to get the symbol from the symbol column.
