    Think: Chinese Finger Traps.



    Same principles at work on the whoopies I believe.

    Great Choice!

    Whoopie slings, with the frontline, and 3 by 3 meter tarp will be a great start. Tree straps and a toggle will get you attached to the tree. The blue walmart ccf pad or any other pad you may have, will work at major low temps. If you read up on the low temp setting trips by Shug and others, they use a combination of pads, down, layered clothing. You can also use a good temperature sleeping bag, either as a bag, or a top quilt, until you determine that you want to continue, and the purchaseitis disease has struck

    Thanks. Will check that out, OldnSlow.

    Where do I get a good cord for whoopie slings (and another one for the tarp) in Sweden?
