It's about 7pm here in Western North Carolina.
And the temperature up at 3600 feet is around 17 degrees.
I've hung my hammock under my OES winter tarp out behind my studio.
My plan is to sleep out there tonight.
I've got my insulated air core mattress, my hudson river top quilt, and my custom pocket-quilts.
For sleeping, I'm planning to wear my midweight thermal underwear and midweight wool socks. Also a knit beanie and mountain hardwear glove liners.
For backup, I've got a heatsheet, a 1/8" GG pad, and a JRB gear hammock.
I'm thinking it could get as low as 10-12 degrees tonight.
And I'm a little nervous about it.
Worst case scenario though is that I can bug-out back into the shop and turn on the heater.
I figure I'll go get in the hammock between 8 and 9pm.
Wish me luck.
