    First real test of my HHED

    Well I'm a hanger for life now. I spent the labor day weekend hanging in my HHED at Sproul State Forest in Central Pa. Went Thurs. -Mon. Except for the coyotes that kept coming into camp everything worked well. I was worried about getting nipped on the butt by a yote but other then that I slept like a baby. I had no back pain like I do at home. The night time temps. were in the low 50's and I was nice and warm. No more tenting for me... Thanks to all of you for your help and advice. It was one of the best camping trips I have ever been on. Gonna head out again this weekend for a short trip and you can bet I'll be hanging...

    Yeah, I bet it was an odd feeling knowing there were coyotes cruising around....

    I remember one night cowboy camping with a bud .... coyote sat down about 20 feet from us and started howling .....

    Thank goodness I was sleeping in a quilt or I would have had to buy a new bag ...... cause I certainly soiled myself!

    Last year at the same site we had black bears coming in. They don't worry me as much as coyotes do. I wish I could have stayed a few weeks out there.Four days wasen't long enough. I can't remember the last time I slept so soundly. Now If I can just talk the wife into hanging a hammock in the bedroom I'll be set...
