Well I finally had my first night hanging late last month and have done several since. I'm still not sure if it's the way I'm going on my AT thru starting next month. I camped out in Cades Cove campground in SMNP last month when it was 25 degrees in my Blackbird with my JRB No Sniveller UQ and Speer winter tarp and actually wasn't to cold at all, I was impressed by that. My problem is I seem to wake up quite a bit during the night to switch positions. In the 4 nights I've slept in it I've woken up at least 4 to 5 times every night. I was wondering if anyone else had this issue when they first started hanging. My hammock also sags quite a bit by the morning so that may not be helping. Not the hammocks fault I weigh 275lbs. While the Blackbird seems to be top notch quality, I can't really use it for a chair. The ridgeline is right in my face when I try this. Am I doing something wrong or should I maybe look into a Speer or something like that without the ridgeline? Sorry for the long winded post. Thanks for all the help you all have given me so far.
