Thaks for all of the advice. I'm not a fan of camping when it is really cold either Gringo. Guess it is the southern boy in me.Thanks for the suggestion of the KAQ. I had not heard of them. I have been lurking for awhile and based on what I have heard decided on my hammock and tarp. This is the last bit of equiptment I have yet to decide on since it seems I need an UQ of some kind. Inexpensive is better but I have learned not to trade quality for price.
A cheap foam pad will provide plenty of insulation - the point is to have SOMETHING underneath you for insulation. Even a wool blanket inside the hammock can work, or any of a number of various blanket options used as an underquilt.
UQs are popular for good reason, but there are many ways to get insulation under you in a hammock.
Agreed, for 3-season hammocking. One thing I've learned is to take a small multi-purpose sitting pad for use during the day on wet ground, on picnic table benches, even on shelter floors.
