A bit of background here before I get to the tip. This will be somewhat of a trip review as well.
The scout troop went out to Lake Mineral Wells State Park to the West of us here in DFW for a little rock climbing and rappeling. That was all real good. To the part all y'all (that the plural of y'all) are interested in. I recently returned my ENO Single Nest to REI in exchange for a Double. The single was a little tight around my shoulders and couldn't contain my DAM. This weekend was my first night out to try the double. It was really great to have the extra room. I was able to get a good diagonal going for max comfort. The first night out, I had the JRB suspension lines attached to the hammock gathering rope on each end, then looped through the descending rings. To which, I connected my quilt. The temps were in the mid to upper 40's. After a couple of hours, my bottom started to get chilly. Reaching between the hammock and the quilt, there was a bit of a gap. For the night, I just took my sit pad and stategically placed it to ward off the chill. During the day, when I could better see, (Here's the tip part) I took the suspension lines out of the descending rings and tied them, using an overhand loop, around the ridge line and then down the side of the hammock. I reconnected the quilt and, viola, a greatly reduced gap and no cold spot.
I also had the responsibility for cooking the adults dinner on Saturday. I cooked a chicken pot pie in a dutch oven that was absolutely fabulous. Here is the link. http://papadutch.home.comcast.net/~p...ckenpotpie.htm. To top that off, I made a no-bake cheese cake for dessert. Good eats.
