    This sounds like a great idea, and I'm going to try it on my next outing...

    Thanks!

    Thanks for posting Pizza

    Thats another project added to the list....

    Any thoughts on whether polypropylene scrim (the thin spun fleece used for protecting plants from frost) would be a good material? I'm thinking it would have the same properties but be much lighter?

    I was wondering if a bandana would work for this. Very cool!

    looks like that will work if you sleep on your back. If a person goes back and forth from sleeping on your side how does that work? Looks like you would choke yourself

    There are times that the only way you can do something is to do it alone.

    I have a really big head hole in mine. I am a back sleeper.
    A tosser and turner may have to try something else or risk life.
    Keeping a dry TQ is a very risky business but I live on the edge!!!!!
    Could always clip it or something.

    Shug be the man, what an inspirational guy, talents and ideas galore. Thank you Shug.

    I'll be trying out a DIY frost grabber tomorrow if all goes well. I have my bridge hung, did a trial hang a few weeks ago and am ready for a second shot at it. Temps are suppose to be in the single digits and will test my abilities.

    Here are some photos of what I had sewn up yesterday. Six segments with fringe that will hold max amount of frost. The fringe will act like small fingers reaching out to grab all they can Material is Maldden Mills fleece. Suppose to be pil resistant when washed. (we'll see.)

    The piece is 20" in diameter.



    Such is life.................

    My daughter changed my plans

    She will go into the hospital tomorrow to have an ultrasound that will determine if a "c" section will be necessary or induced labor to deliver my "grandson"

    My wife and I will be leaving this evening to arrive in Kenosha, WI to be with her family for next 4 days so we can babysit our 2 grandaughters

    Hammock hanging will have to wait.

    Just a note:

    The frost grabber will hang from above not lay flat on my face without support.

    I'm a back/side/tosser/turner.
    So I just lay the shug-bib across the top of the bag with a little tucked in long the top edge. Also prefer syn material, once cotton gets wet in winter it never dries unless you hang it by the fire...

    My shug-bib is cut from the back of an old polypro shirt. 24" x 20"

    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    Something like this might work but maybe in a wicking fabric:
