    Approx about 300 nites give or take a few over the past 2 yrs. about 60 of those outdoors here and there. My first year, I was a silent reader on this forum and finally joined a year ago as I had alot of questions about everything imaginable to improve my hanging and equipment needs.

    My anniversary date is January 18th, 2011. Haven't gone back since.

    I've got less then 2 weeks in my WBBB and a month or two in my Tableclothfactory DIY the rest have been in my old DIY including 5 days at the beginning of June at a Fly In.
    So in total 530 nights and about a dozen naps a month.

    I will be at 38 nights straight outdoors in my Clark NX 250 tonight. The comfort level is fantastic, and needless to say, NO bugs inside.

    I find that each night gets more comfortable.
    Last summer I slept n it 3 nights (with pads) and was ok
    When I got my full quilt set this year - the first night I tossed and turned trying to get comfortable - kind of anxious - like a kid with a new toy - then I actually went camping with it and spent 2 more nights in it - only waking slightly through the night to readjust and was right back asleep - slept in till 9:30am the first day and 8:15 the second. (this from someone who is usually awake at 6-7am no matter what)

    last weekend got 2 more nights and slept much better - only a few slight wake ups in the night to readjust - and one night was woke up by rain at 4am but was back asleep shortly.

    so technically - I have 5 night in a blackbird with my UQ and TQ -
    My son has a hennessey and falls asleep in less than 5minutes and sleeps right through the night (he has 5 nights as well)

    gonna camp out in the backyard again this weekend!!
