    Smile ViDEO: Hammock Under-Quilts Re-Visited.....Bonus: Karl meets Doyle

    Got a couple of requests to drop in and re-visit the world of hammock under-quilts. They can be a bit daunting for new users.....
    This is just my experience with them. Learned a bunch of this on right here on HF.........Thankee and Credit to all the hammock gurus here.

    *Look at full length and 1/2 underquilts.
    *How to hang them on the hammock. Including covering the footbox area on
    a Warbonnet BlackBird hammock.
    *Fixed and channel suspension
    *See my UQ collection
    *How to adjust it from the hammock
    *The use of a pad in the foot area when using a 1/2 UQ.
    *Blast-Off)))))
    *Some final thoughts.....
    **BONUS......Sling Blade Theater....Karl meets Doyle....pardon my self-indulgent ways))))

    I do so hope this helps clear up some UQ issues. A lot to cover. Just fool with them and go camping.
    All secure in sector seven,
    Shug

    Most excellent video Shug. Quite informative. I always find my eyes wondering around your yard trying to figure out what all those great toys are

    Seemed like time to touch on UQs again and BarefootChild requested it.
    I still find stuff in my yard.

    Never tried a Hennessy....same rules apply though. If it is a bottom entry just push the UQ aside.
    Thanks.

    Excellent job Shug. Lots of Great tips.
    I've never had a problem tying a marlin spike hitch after watching one of your videos and now I won't forget to pull the UQ shockcords over the foot box.
    thank you.

    Good info there Shug. Like your advice about snugging up the UQ. More often than not, if I'm cold it was because the UQ was too loose. Even non-differential cut UQ's are better off too tight than too loose.
