    Backyard Hang tonight!

    Testing out a modified mummy bag UQ tonight. Can't wait for the temp to drop, don't think I'll get to freezing temps but should get cold enough! I can't wait for the morning coffee in the Jetboil!

    Nothing like testing gear in the backyard. It's one of the things I love about hammocks. I'd never even consider it in my tent in the past. Giving up my nice, comfy bed for the ground was inconceivable. Now, it's a pleasure to give up the bed to try something new in the hammock for a night.

    Hammock bug bit me pretty hard. I'm in the market for an UQ. Looking at the Arrowhead Jarbridge with either the 4 season or Apex Climashield upgrade. Really excited to get out in some snow expeditions.

    I agree with the comfy bed vs tent vs hammock. I'm trying to convince some of the guys I work with that sleeping in a hammock is a lot more comfortable than it sounds. They think I'm sleeping in a rope/spreader bar style hammock.

    It started raining here about 30 min ago. I grabbed my gear and headed out to the back yard I understand why my wife thinks I'm a bit "off" but I do it anyway....I just can't help myself.
    If you ain't havin' fun, you're doin' it wrong

    Our wives share the same thoughts. Hanging in the backyard is also a great way to unwind from the constant whining from a 6 and 8 year old. Have fun tonight!
