    Hello from VA

    My name is Mike and I am a hammock addict. I have been using a HH for about 5 years now and have a couple hundred nights off the ground. I found HF while searching for the solution to being chilly at night. My first night in a hammock was in the jungles of Central America with no sleeping bag and I froze since then I have used all sorts of tricks to stay warm down into the 60s(F) and would like to make my hammock cozy well below that. Looks like some great DIY ideas on here as well as solid reviews of most of the available options on the market.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Yep, welcome to the forums! Lots to read here about staying cozy in the cold. Also may want to check out Just Jeff's site at www.tothewoods.net. Lots of info there as well.
