    24*f Roof top hang

    A few friends ,and I headed down to Kiptopeak VA. for some trophy Stripedbass fishing out of the kayaks. We rented one of the cabins at the state park. To bad the weather turned for the worse. Air temps in the mid 20's, and water temp droped into the upper 30's. This shut the fish down. We did get out in the kayaks though before the weather turned even worse, and I did get to do my first below freezing hang. I brought my B/M stand down with me on the roof of my jeep, and thats where I hung Friday night. I used my NX150 with Z-liners, and a No Snivler top quilt with no tarp. It was 24*, there was a lite wind, and the skies where clear. I had a toasty night except where one of my shoulder keeped hitting one of the kayaks. In the morning there was a good deal of frost on the out side of the hammocks weather sheild. If I would have turned the hammock around there would have been plenty of room for my shoulders between the kayaks.

    Getting in, and out was easy. There is about 3' between the two kayaks, and a plywood floor. Getting down in the morning with all the frost was a little tuffer though. I'm working on a rack that would allow me to hang on either side of the jeep at a much lower hight.

    LOL, great idea.

    I've been wondering how to make a rack to hang from the side of my Tundra.

    Keep us posted on how yours comes along.

    I think that's a first
    But what I'm thinking now is testing your winter tarp going down the road at 30mph
    40mph
    50mph
    don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!

    That is a great set up for the kayaks and your hammock. It is well thought out.
    Take care,
