    Testifying on CBS and UQ remedy

    Near record low temp for place and date in central NJ, 56 Fahrenheit before 5:30 AM sunrise. So, what started as pleasantly cooler and barely breezy 'round midnight (in cotton pants, shirt, & cotton vest-sweater, at a newly found site by the water tower,) was vaguely uncomfortable during the night as temps dropped and cold by full wakening around 6AM. That's with weather-shield.

    I should have ridden once up at sunrise, but instead I walked home to retrieve an Arrowhead 2/3 under-quilt synth Rip Waverly waved away here (in favor of his others), my first.

    Long story short: after fumbling to set it up: Surprise after getting in at the same experience of immediate warmth of a down bag -- no mass to warm first -; and then out so solidly for 2+ hours as to miss a 9:30AM dental appointment.

    So, noobs like me: You may not know how fitfully you've slept until comfort lets you sleep real well. This (highly compressible) 1lb UQ is the loving arms of Morpheus (when he was 2/3 grown).

    How true.

    "...You may not know how fitfully you've slept until comfort lets you sleep real well..."

    You havn't earned your hammock "wings" until you have woken up in the wee hours of the morn, anywhere from mildly uncomfortable to bone-chilled cold. Amazing how an UQ makes life beautiful!

    Amazing the change here in central jersey from the 100's and high humidity to the beautiful weather we've had recently!
