    First Test Hang

    I recently purchased a Warbonnet Blackbird and did a yard hang with it. I also took it out for a test hang at near Hansen Creek in the Snoqualmie National Forest. Just thought I would share some pics.

    I tried using a thermarest Z rest as bottom insulation and it just didnít cut the 30* F low temp. I ended up ordering a Yeti from WBO.
    The good news is that I was stoked about being able to set up in a cool place like this.
    Take care all!

    Hope this link works. It's my first post with a link.

    Way to go Mosquito. Nice setup. I totally agree with OutandBack as I used a thermarest but this past weekend tried a proper under quilt. Oh what a difference.

    I will be sure to pass on to the local mosquitoes that they should go and visit you.
