    Second Winter Incubator Test Hang !!

    Well the first hang was Ok but not great hat CBS and then my bladder had to wake me up every 1.5 hrs grr. temp was 19 F was happy but felt I needed to correct before the February Hang.

    Second test back to cold damp garage no heat no side door temp 18 F snowing had 5 " fall through night. added another knot 6" from existing knot on suspension per Adam stormcrow recommendations . I had also sewed my thin fleece walmart throw blanket throw like sleeping bag to a shape that sort of resembles a TQ so it fit in my 20 montbell 650 down fill bag I use as a TQ currently. I wore the same as the last test fleece baklava knit had poly wool long johns fleece top fleece sweatpants and single pair of wigwams 40 below wool socks. I did omit the face mask this time. I settled into the hammock at 9:30 pm with a little cbs so attached my piece of shock cord to middle side loop of UQ and tossed over hammock ridge line and clipped onto opposing loop, withing second cbs was gone. I slept like I never slept before the whole night other than once at 2 am to do nature call slept until 6 am when garbage truck pulled up to my garage and started compacting lol. probably could have fallen back to sleep , but honestly was refreshed from such a warm and comfortable night. I still feel I can get my setup down atleast another 10-15 . Now on another note I tried denatured alcohol instead of heet for my alcohol stove and same scenario left it out with water and was just as sluggish to light and preform as was the heet. So that being said will have to sleep with fuel to keep warm. February Hang here I come whooo Buddy !!!

    Glad you slept so soundly!
    I always sleep with my alcohol in my pocket in cold weather ... it will really help the stove light and burn well.

    Shug I skipped on pea pod test last night with bag as I wanted to see if I eliminated the cbs from the adjustments made that adam suggested . I may just save trying the bag as a pea pod for really cold temps happy with how things turned out as is.



    Thanks Stan been allot of work and allot of cash unfortunately lol

    Glad to here your winter incubator worked out so well after some tweaking. I love my 3S Incubator so warm and toasty. But I agree when It comes to Heavier UQ's shock cord on the center loops over the ridgeline certainly helps keep the CBS away. I concerns me however on the wear it would put on a net if the rubbing would affect it or not.
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.
