    Did a test last night in my hammock in the cellar. Not exactly cold weather conditions. But at some point I must have started to over heat I kicked the TQ off. I slipped the sunshade between the UQ and hammock, also snugged the hammock up to be certain there was no air flow underneath.

    Slept outside yesterday without a CCF. I am getting better at adjusting underquilts.
    Stealth camping is all fun and games until you have to take a dump.

    I hope there is a privacy partition.....
    If it moves, you can eat it. No promises you will think it tastes good.

    Don't worry there is plenty of privacy for 1 person.

    Hey Buddy Privy. There were alot of them in the Army. "Hey buddy watch where you point that thing!"
    I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority. - E. B. White (1899 - 1985)

    I tested some of my gear last night and this is was the result.
    The temperature was between 23 and 30 degrees, calm night with no wind.
    I used
    ENO Hammock
    8x10 silnylon tarp
    30 deg Monbell Bag super stretch
    20-25 JacksRbetter UQ Torso length
    Worn:
    Synthetic light tank top
    Synthetic T shirt
    Synthetic light Long sleeve
    Thin down vest
    Thin New Balance hat
    Thin cotton long underwear
    Thin North Face Pants
    One pair wool socks

    I was toasty and comfortable everywhere except for my feet. I did not need gloves, my face and head was warm with just the thin hat and the sleeping bag.
    I struggled with keeping my feet warm all night. I started by using my packs sit pad underneath but it slid around and would not stay in place. I tried putting an automobile sun screen under and around , that worked for a while but got cold again. Then I put a silk bag liner in the foot box of my bag and that got me to morning but was still cold. I could have put my gloves over my feat or brought another pair of socks. I’ll have to work at a solution to this for next time. Id like to keep things light but I’ll have heavier back up stuff in my truck if needed for the winter hang. .
    Maybe having the foot end of the hammock slightly lower would help with this? (as far as blood flow)
