I have been reading posts about UQ and am thinking of combining ideas. I plan on an overnighter at the end of January with temps around 20-30f. I am a pretty warm sleeper so tell me if this would work. I was going to use an old sleeping bag (pretty heavy) not sure of temp rating, folded in half with emergency blanket in between the layers with paracord as the suspension and using a cheap Walmart CCF pad wrapped in fleece inside the hammock with me. Do you think this would be warm enough? I use a mummy Kelty mummy bag that I usually sweat in.
I am on a strict budget, I thought hammock camping would be cheaper but since I cannot wait until spring and want to sleep out now it will cost some money and the wife will not hear about it.
I plan on bringing a tent for back up since this will be my first overnighter in a hammock and in the winter
