    Not too bad

    My first try at hanging was a bust; strong winds and cold. The wind was too strong to hang everything by myself so I slept in the truck and decided to buy a motorhome.

    Last weekend I decided to give it one more try and hike far so I could not bail out to easy. I had a good sleep, temps only hit 18. I used a blue mat and zipped up in my bag, shorts, tee shirt and a hat and was quite warm.

    Now I just have to figure out how to connect the JBR sling system and I think I got it made.

    If you made it to 18 degrees on your second try, you did pretty good! It takes a while to develope your hanging skills (I'm still learning too!) Dont quit---------keep hanging!
    FYI: If you want to know what type a certain bear is, sneak up behind it and kick it. Then,
    run like crazy and climb up a tree. If the bear climbs the tree and eats you, it's a black
    bear. If the bear just pushes the tree over and eats you, it's a grizzly bear : )


    Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me, either, just leave me alone.

    The tarp is a Superfly. I'm still trying to get it to hang better. There are no trees where I live (desert) so I don't get out much.
