wow interesting pictures,what keeps the tarp from melting neoI have many pictures posted in different threads around the forum. Here are a couple recent ones from christmas day, so you get an idea of what the setup looks like inside:
You are completely right in suggesting the basha, as it is an already proven ground concept. I should have mentioned that my primary goals is to work with the JRB Hammock Tent, and Ti-goat stove as to provide real-world field testing in very low temps. As you can see from above, I have the same benefits you described in basha camping, already altered and designed for hammock.
I have done extensive testing ... but my weakest areas, and the reason for this thread is my lack of knowledge and confidence
in my hammock insulation system. I sure as heck own enough gear. I just need to find the best way to put the right components
together to stay safe in temps potentially reaching -90 deg F. Its almost 100 deg's colder than the coldest weather I
have hammocked in. Maybe I should have posted this in the discussion thread I already started for hot hammocking. But I don't know how to move a post now that its made. (happens when you are still up and typing at 2AM) perhaps a mod could move this for me. Either way I am still looking for conventional wisdom on un-heated hammock insulation and getting well below zero deg F.
