    So Finally a night in the pseudo woods

    Finally got to take the new Switchback 1.9, outside last night. Best I could do was the walk-in camper area at the county park. I did find two trees in the only vacant spot and got things set up. There were about 100 scouts and I don't know how many tents about 50 yards through the undergrowth. I figured I was in for a cool, sleepless and loud night. I did hear someone mumble something like "that dude's got a hammock", anyway.

    Well I was right on 1 count, it dropped to 45F. I settled in around 10:30, woke up at 12:22 looked at my phone, pulled the under quilt back to the center of the hammock, rolled around a bit, the next thing I knew it was 7:17 and the sun was warming me up!??! What! I cannot remember only waking up once while camping and that's a long time. Family photos have me tenting on Sullivan's Island at 6 months old.

    Anyway thanks to my friend of a friend (Kurt)(HF-krshome, in case there is a referral bonus) for the intro and all you guys here at the forum for you experience. Now for some real hiking and hanging. Thanks all.

    Welcome Lester! Sounds like you had a good night

    What kind of tarp are you using on your setup?

    Thanks, many more nights are on the way!

    I just retuned from a speaking gig in Kearney, NE. Flew in/out of Omaha, bit of a drive. Very friendly and helpful people, just hope the class could understand me. I might have past as a local, until I started speaking!

    Isn't sleeping in a hammock grand? I slept in mine last night - got into the low 40s, but only woke up once when nature called. I was toasty warm all night long! :-)
