    I liked that cover over the fire. That Exped hammock looked cool.
    Those socks were so warm for sure. The Exped was right good looking.

    Yeah but that is down-right cold for Florida....glad ya'll got some good chill.

    Southerner that I am, I've never been in temperatures that cold. Coldest temperature I've witnessed was -2 degrees F and I was indoors for that one. The low end of my spend-the-night-outdoors comfort range is about 30 degrees (I call it being Southern, but no offense is taken if you call it being a baby!).

    Great video. Cool shots of the gear, too.
    To true.
    I grew up down South but have adapted to the White North frost.

    Franken-quilt is about 30º to 28º.....kept me good and warm underneath for sure.

    Sorry that you only made one night, that had to hurt leaving that behind.
    At least know one shouted "Is that the best you got!" in the middle of the night...

    Now I get to pack for my work trip next month.
    Looks like it's gonna be a bit chilly there as well with the "high" for the week reaching 0 F.
    Russian Cold-Buttocks Hang....man, that should be fun.

That was a **** fine fire though, it would have made me happy, for a while! The umbrella over the fire was the second biggest umbrella I’ve ever seen. Thanks for the most enjoyable video Mr Shug!
    My crazy pills stayed home...woulda been crazy not to go at all)))))

    Shug--excellent because it shows how to double up and get deep temps without use of a pod.
    I too would like to know the rating of the FrankenQuilt AND the sleeping bag you used as pod.
    Very impressive Mac didn't even have a hat on and loved the cover over the fire pit.
    4Dogs rig....who made it? Gotta try one of those!
    Franken-Quilt is good to 30º to 28º. My WM bag is a 20º.
    Pod system is all good in those temps. My feet were my warmest part on me. Nice.
    fourdog is in an Exped hammock and it looked inviting.

    -19 and then 70 degrees means you only get credit for 25. 5 degrees...

    If I play my cards right in Siberia, I may have no need of extra insulation.

    I believe Shug said that was a 20 degree WM bag wrapped around the hammock. Although it might work, I have a little more faith in Ed Speer's handiwork.

    I was just thinking about you today as i was pulling my pulk along. I thought haven't heard much from Shug in a while . Glad you and all the other feller's got out. That is some cold. I haven't seen that kind of cold in a very long time. That's ok with me. And so little snow there. Mac came up all that way,,,that's a trooper.

    Looks like a blast and a good group got out there. I wish I was there. I think I have me sleep system dialed in for sub zero, but 10F is my personal best.

    I'm working in Canada now, and I too have discovered a new found love for those Cofee Crisps. Great for cold eats before bed, no teeth chiping is a good thing!

    I'm looking foreword to every one else's reperts. The best thing about getting out there is being out there. Lots of stories to tell and ideas to be shared. Good stuff. Thanks!

    Now that’s cold. Reminds me of my days at the University of Minnesota.

    So what your view on the Cuben tarp and its abilities in cold temperature’s? I do not own a tarp yet and am thinking of the Cuben tarp as a good all around tarp.

    Are your seams taped? And if so how did they hold up?

    I’m still not ready for cold temps! Definitely not −17*!! It’s 24* in my backyard atm and I’m toasty warm in my ‘mock (in my family room, where it’s 68* hehe) Soon as I get the dough for a quality UQ/TQ/bag set up I may be interested in coming to visit y’all! Maybe in a winter or two…

    Does the Shug ever put out a bad video? I think not! Thank you!
