    Improvised UQ

    Was out at a group hang recently and didn't have my sleeping bag UQ with me. What I did have was an old woollen blanket (got it free and dyed it brown using teabags). A few minutes with some paracord & I had it snug around the hammock. Was toasty warm. Didn't sleep much though as we had very heavy rain and the noise was extreme!

    'fraid not but I folded the sides in a bit (like you would in a sleeping bag UQ) and using a constrictor knot, tied paracord to each corner which was then strung over the ridgeline
