    Congrats! Gettin' out there's what it's all about! Having the right gear and a no-fear attitude sure helps!

    The great thing about a hammock is the ease of making a hot cup of your favorite morning beverage while staying in your bag!

    JW - do you think your set up can go colder? Do you desire to go out in colder temps I guess is the real question?

    Congrats- that's about the same my personal low!(~10-11)
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    I think that is as low as I could go without adding more insulation or heat source. Friday night was 17-18 and I was very comfortable. The 11-12 on Sat was okay but not as comfy. I had to leave all my clothes layers on too.

    I'm an assistant scoutmaster and I camp with my Troop so I have to be ready for whatever temp comes.

    Any colder than that I would be breaking out an emergency blanket and some hot-packs.

    That's one reason I like incorporating insulated pants and a jacket into my sleeping gear...great for sitting around in, and it keeps me just a little more comfortable in the morning when I get out from under all that down.

    Congrats on a new low! (Doesn't that sound a bit creepy?)

    That's cold. Well done.

    Getting out in the morning, packed, and back on the trail is the toughest part.
