    Talking 1st full night

    Finally got it all together and went out for a quick overnighter.

    Met up with RCRacin and just "HUNG" around.

    My PLUQ kept me warm, and none of my homemade stuff broke.

    Nice setup, How did you sleep? My first night was pretty good, but I woke up a couple of times. I think it has something to do with using a therma rest pad.

    I slept well my only slight issue was my PLUQ was a bit snug below my knees and had a pressure point and the feet got a bit chilly.

    I must say it is not my first night in a hammock, Just my first night in my WBBB and my PLUQ and Kelty.

    I had an old jungle hammock, that just kind of rotted away, Years later I found an ENO S/N that I used. graduated on up LOL

    Congrats! I just had a hammock "first experience" on Saturday night: I had to bail and go indoors at 2am due to CBS. I was out on a spur of the moment, and pieced together a bunch of gear from others, without my better stuff.

    SO: based on that, and your timely thread, my poncho liner is now going to become a PLUQ. It sure would've helped. Thanks for the extra push!
