Getting ready for my first sleep tonight in my Hennessey Asym Expedition Zip.
I live in Northern Ontario, Canada about 3 hours north of Toronto.
It was a beautiful day here and there are clear skies tonight with the low expected to be 13 C (55 F) so warmth shouldn't be an issue.
I have been backpacking and canoeing for decades and have recently decided to try out a hammock for my solo adventures (without my kids). I have slept in tarps, tents and bivy sacks but I think the hammock is just about the best light-weight system I've seen, so I'm excited to see how it goes tonight.
I am using a therma rest for my bottom insulation and a synthetic mummy bag zipped half way open as a top quilt. The stock fly is a little small so I'm planning to buy a silnylon tarp from www.mec.ca
I have learned a great deal from the forums and watching the videos here as well as on www.youtube.com. Thanks for all the great posts.
We'll see how it goes tonight.
