My girls aren't quite ready for fulblown hammock camping yet . . .
one; they haven't slept a full night in one yet,
and two I don't have enough UQing for either of them
and it is a little cool at night yet.
So for now, as I sleep in my Clark NX150 they will be in a tent beside me.
We plan on going on backpacking trips were they will need to carry their own gear . . .
. . . to a point.
Sleeping bags, quite a light tent, water . . . and Therm-A-Rest's.
(One can pack the tent, one the fly, and they can split the poles)
I am thinking that the Therm-A-Rest's are much longer that they are,
and if I were to cut them down to length, they would be carrying less.
At least not packing more than they need.
<<< I could even do it to the sleeping bags . . . they are new, but not expensive,
and the future holds changes or gearing up anyways for hammock camping. >>>
Question: has anyone done this ? ? ?
And I gues it is just a matter of heat sealing the cut end so it doesn't leak air,
or would I be better off glueing the top and bottom together and then gluing a patch around the end,
back up top and bottom for a couple of inches ? ? ?
Any Ideas ? ? ?
