    As we speak ...

    Well, I'm hanging in my hammock as I type this on my phone. This is my first attempt sleeping in my hammock.

    I'm excited, but a little nervous. I noticed I pitched my tarp a little tight to my hammock and I don't have much headroom when I get out of the tarp.

    My new quilts arrived today from HG, and I'm hoping these 40 degree quilts will keep me warm tonight. It's supposed to get to about 30 tonight, but I'm a cold sleeper. My feet are nice and toasty right now!!



    The wind is picking up and I'm trying to decide if I should use my pullouts or not.

    Decisions ... Decisions ...

    Well, I got up and ties out the pullouts. Glad the drizzle stopped long enough for me to do it!! It definitely added a little more open area inside the tarp. I still need to raise it up, but that will have to wait until next time.

    I decided to snap a few pix while I was out. Sorry, they aren't the best pix.

    A "Smartphone" is basically a small handheld computer. So posting pictures is the same procedure as your desktop.
