    Plenty of space sounds good, jobs is good too. The north would be a bit too
    cold for me. The one good thing about this place is that there are only ten
    days, or less, per year that are below 20 degrees C. Your chill record
    of –33.6c is way beyond anything I have ever experienced. I hope you got
    some kind of bravery award. You must have some good gear!

    My record is +4c, it was the middle of winter, I was on the top of a mountain
    and just over 1000m above sea level. I’d still like to visit, you never know, I
    might like it and refuse to leave. It sure looks nice!

    ***maybe we could get a group rate on a private jet and go to Sweden for a big ole group hang.
    that would be awesome!!!

    Now that there is a dam fine idea ,Flatline! It would have to be in the middle of a fine Sweden summer.
    Brisbane to Stockholm $1795 It’s 6 degrees c there today (4th April)

    54f, 12c is the average low in July.
    70f, 21c is the average high in July.

    That probably wouldn’t kill me! lol! Actually, it’s much the same as winter
    here, I’ll be right, not good, but alright! July looks like the go!

    Thanks for the video link HWS, I'll watch them now.

    Ray never goes into the jungle without a hammock and he seems to enjoy it:

    Someone needs to tell him that there is such things like underquilts! He might want to convert fully to the hammock. And if someone points him to HF he'll probably learn about hanging his hammock with a little more sag for a more comfortable lay.
