Lol thanks for the words of encouragement!
I haven't yet begun the process but i have ruled out anything combustible right away.
I'm leaning towards something useable with a flexible solar panel mountable on the tarp (light weight), perhaps some kind of low output heated blanket with a heat reflective backing not going to be hot just warm enough to take the edge off or preheat your quilt etc etc
just a first thought of course. Open to suggestions!
Well ya going to need a big battery for that.
There was an Old Man with a owl,
Who continued to bother and howl;
He sat on a rail, And imbibed bitter ale,
Which refreshed that Old Man and his owl.WOO
Being a bit of a tinkerer I'm beginning what is sure to be a long and expensive adventure into the wide world of heating my hammock. In preparation for this experiment i thought it might be prudent to ask if anyone else is attempting this already and may have some words of wisdom, things to avoid, or suggestions
A time honored method, put rocks in a campfire till they get real hot, move the rocks under your hammock, or better yet, an enclosed tarp configuration. The rock will give off heat for many hours. It works.
i wonder about a 6 volt coon light battery an inverter,and a water line heat tape.
Heat tape! Yes that is a great starting point, light weight and would probably be able to design something to be used like a sleeping pad, space blanket type backing....we may be onto something here :-)
Go to Heaven for the climate, Hell for the company.
