So, I'm considering a change of lineup for getting my wife permanently "off the ground" when we're camping.
She's got a pretty pink-n-purple GTUL that she's used once and enjoyed, but there are a few concerns still. No bug netting, she needs a decent sized tarp, and she needs under insulation. Additionally, she really would enjoy something larger and roomier.
And...I'm on a budget.
So, I was looking at options, and I'm starting to think that I'd be better off just getting her a HH Safari...zip if possible.
Now to my "ask"...
I'm thinking about sewing together an equivilant to the HHSS for it, with purple ripstop nylon as the undercover, and a couple of layers of headboard cover matting from Hancock's layered together to make the equivilant of the underpad. Thinking about it, is there any reason I couldn't shape and sew these all together into a single piece that attaches at either end similar to the HHSS, complete with holes for side tie outs?
So it would be just one single item to unroll and attach to the bottom of the hammock, and then roll up and put into a customer stuff sack when we move on? And just do the normal space blanket on top of that underneath the hammock?
Suggestions or thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated. At the end of the day, the materials would be far cheaper than going for a UQ, she's not going to camp in uber cold weather anyway, and weight isn't a major issue since we car camp when she's with us anyway.
