    Frost OMG!

    I set up my new karo step for a test run last night with no tarp and I woke up covered in frost. What is the deal?

    I was warm, but the frost at 29f at 6:30 pee time looked like I got snowed on..

    Your breath condenses and falls on your quilt...

    Check Shug's videos, he sets up a piece of fleece that clips to his ridgeline and catches the frost...

    Ever go out to your car in the morning and see frost on the windshield? Same thing happens to you in your hammock. Using a tarp will reduce or eliminate it.

    Whoopie sling to the antenna, tie outs to the door handles.
    There are very few problems we can solve ourselves, but there is almost nothing we cannot solve together.

    Most often when someone says they can't, they are unwilling to try.
