    Excellent advice. I'm looking forward to some trip report videos. The trailer looks great.

    That was exciting. I cant wait for the sequel. What did you use for bottom insulation?
    I wrapped up in a sleeping bag when I first started hanging -harder than you think- then I made an underquilt and topquilt using Kmart down pillows. BIG difference I tell ya!
    Shug's videos are all you need to get started. Then you begin the journey of learning while you actually get out there and do it. That is where the real education begins LOL.
