I went on a walk with the Syracuse Outdoor Adventures Meetup today, on the Moose river in the Adirondacks. I had already decided to hang up there at Moss Lake afterwards. So I went for the walk around the lake and down to Bub Lake as well. It's very pretty up there with an inch or two of snow on the ground.
I had decided to hang there Saturday night, but I was concerned my setup would have been too cold. I don't have a proper UQ. I setup my poncho liner, which I have run shock cord through to close up the ends, and laid my down sleeping bag in between it and the hammock. I tried to pin it first to the poncho liner, then to the hammock with clothes pins, but after getting in and out of the hammock it was clear I wasn't going to be able to keep the sleeping bag in place. It was pretty bloody cold lying there with my feet damp from wearing my Stormchasers all day. So I packed up and went home!
I need to test these things in my backyard first before driving two hours from home!
