    I could almost hear Benny Hill music as you were getting in the hammock with those pads!
    Take care, HB

    Thanks Shug!

    Saw this video last night but wanted to savor it over my mornin' cup-o-joe.

    Brings back fond memories of fighting sleeping bags over CCF pads. Definitely an ab builder

    Outstanding video Shug! I really liked the opening sequence where you were playing a saw. It takes me back to my childhood I remember being mesmerized by my great unkle who used to play the saw.

    Love it, Shugity-Shug-Shug! Beautiful family!
    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'd like to add, based on my single hang experience, that Exped Dreamwalker sleeping bag works very well with the hammock.
    http://www.exped.com/exped/web/exped_homepage_na.nsf
    It zips down the center all the way down. You can put your hands out to make adjustments while you lay. Separate hood and neck strap also works well.
    For me it took no effort at all to get in or out of it inside the WBBB.

    I got the older model, WallCreeper, at a nice discount from here:
    http://www.outdoorfair.de/epages/611...lcreeper-Large
    I checked with Exped and an independent source about the differences between the old and the new model and they confirmed only the name changed.
    No effort....it is sleeping bags and pads time to step into the light!
    Those are nifty bags. Did I just type nifty???

    I don't miss them but the Noobs need to know that they will get you there.

    I truly never found pads that bad. Took me a while to trust UQs....but now a believer me))))

    The saw is actually pretty hard to get a sound out of. They are good for sawing.

    Great stuff as always Shug

    Since I don't have a dedicated deep cold quilt, I usually layer one, or more, of my summer quilts, and one of my bags to get down to real cold temps.

    It also allows for temp regulation when you really don't need all of that insulation

    Thanks for another informative video. I"ve been using my sleeping bag as a top quilt before I knew what one was.
