    I have a solution. Go buy an egg crate blue foam pad from wal-mart. I don't know why, but that pad is sooooo STICKY!! Once you put it down that thing is not going to slide anywhere. Its almost frustrating because its hard to get it just right, but once you do, it stays in its place and will not move.

    So, anyone know where I can find the Safari online? After a cursory internet search, I haven't been able to find anywhere that sells it save the Hennessy website. I'm a cheap *******, looking for a less expensive alternative.

    Thanks.

    The egg crate foam bounced all over. Not as bad as the self inflating pad... but I'm gonna have to tweak it. Maybe put it under the hammock on top of the underquilt and see how that fares.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    A Speer SPE might help.

    I was thinking about that. I'm exploring options.

    Part of the problem is just the way it fits I think. I'm not cold with the setup I have even off the mat. But I do need a balaclava or something for my head. I found that out last night when I was in the mid 30's

    Once I put a hoodie on I warmed up and maybe even was too warm cause I seemed to sweat against the pad.
