    Another great video Shug. You are Shug of the warm stylish socks now.

    I liked that cover over the fire. That Exped hammock looked cool.

    Nice video, Shug. We hit 25* at the Florida hang, but that's just a nice summer day for you. When it comes to cold weather we are mere amateurs here in Florida.

    All gear is better when made by hand. Even better when made by the hand of a loved one.

    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.

    Ah, got to love the handmade wool socks! Glad to see you made it out, if only for one night. Mighty cold out there, you folks are braver than I!

    Cheers

    Watching that video makes me look over at my wall of down and wonder what I'm doing here working when I could be freezing my feathers off.
    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.

    You hope it gets down to minus 17! Did you leave your medication at home. lol Here, I hope it doesn't get down to +17C (64F) Id be scared, Id be number twoing myself! 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 Ive ever seen. Thanks for the most enjoyable video Mr Shug!

    Bet you pack the PeaPod Walter!
    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!

    And thanks for the shout-out, Shug. Would have loved to be there at that manly gathering.
    And yeah, Fourdog seems to be getting the lead, though I doubt it. Nothing beats a simple open gathered end hammock, IMOH.
    And a beauty, who can knit and loves her father. Can one ask for more.
    Best,

    You were spoken of well on the hang. we all enjoy you and wish you all the best.

    MAC! Wear a hat :P
    It would take me a while to get out of my quilts..
    thx for sharing
    It does take a while to want to come out....those fingers are numb quickly in the morn!

    Big parachute and it helped hold the heat a bit.
