Inspired by brother Shug and others, I set up my rig in the yard and had a fairly good 1030PM~430AM hang.
My DIY Noah Lamport tarp is ...OK. The middle tie-outs are located too high, much to my chagrin. Crazy overkill, but I might add one in the middle a bit lower. Cheapy shock cord did the trick for those tie-outs, though. Haven't sealed them yet with thinned silicone.
My under-the-tarp ridgeline is fastened to the tarp by prussics tied in 7/64th amsteel. Trucker's hitch and figure 9s on the RL.
DIY UQ made from random garage sale down cannibalized from sleeping bag. UQ=modified Kelty +20 bag with kids down jacket. A fun night of sleep!
Q: why does the need to relieve oneself vary inversely to the temperature?
