Well I got my Blackbird friday and I just couldn't resist sleeping in it that very night!
It was about 40f, so i thought it was a great time to test the ole' hammock out. I was using a JacksRbetter torso pad which worked very well. The only problem I had was my feet were freeeeeeeeeeezing. I think I'll get an underquilt and cut the torso pad down to a smaller size and use it to insulate my feet. Literally, I woke up in the middle of the night and they were numb. Overall, it was the best sleep i've ever had outdoors. I was a tenter (Tarptent contral), had a tough time getting any sleep. The hammock was **** near more comfortable than my bed, very happy with that. I can't wait to test it out in the piney woods as shug would say.
here are some setup pictures.. be easy on the noob, this was the first hammock i've ever setup. I was also using my Marmot Hydrogen sleeping bag as a top quilt (unzipped). You might notice my angles might not look right. I was in a hurry setting this puppy up, i did readjust the hammock in the middle of the night. That was about the time I found my sweet spot :]
