Have a great month out on the road. I'm going to try the super shelter in a few days although at the temps we get around here its not that necessary but good to know.

    Hey Shug,

    Another very informative and entertaining video from the "Master Winter Hanger" Thanks for the conversion of temps for us Canadians and for our European buddies as well. I am going to get a bigger tarp and hope to get out for a test hang in the backyard and maybe a overnighter to my favorite spot. Have a good time on the road and take care buddy.
    Take care,
    Bluefin

    could have been worst ... Shug could have used the Hickery method of using fire to warm yourself ... only it's not the same opening that's involved! Right Shug-row?

    On the road back shortly pal ... can't wait to check this out first thing in Chicago!

    Hey Shug,

    I'm looking at the AHE Toxaway in stealth brown. I currently only have the stock diamond asym from HH. way too small for cool weather. Any suggestions ?
    Take care,
    Bluefin

    I noticed you mentioned issues with trying to sleep asym. A full sized peapod alleviates most of that problem as it is six feet in circumference. A full sized peapod might help with the chilly toes as well since they are 9.5 feet long.

    I've had one for several years. I succumbed to the lure of the fractional UQ/TQ combo. This season I have been rediscovering what a good design Ed Speer had all along for a sub-zero solution. While I've had to wake up in the middle of the night to tweak my regular UQ's to resolve a cold spot, I've never had a cold spot in a peapod. I might have a cool spot, but never a shoulder slip or anything like that to contend with. I still like to use ALL of my other gear, but if it's going deep into the negative digits, I'll always start with my peapod.

    Sounds like Darby needs to send you one for some proper testing/marketing!
