    First time out in winter!!

    This afternoon, I headed down to my local county park, and took about a two mile hike. Stopped about half way through, and setup my ENO DN. didn't take my tarp, or anything, as I basically wanted to set it up. Kicked back, and took a 20 minute nap!! Still need to get a few kinks worked out, but all went well! Was great laying there with the snow falling down!

    Did you have a pad or UQ? I freeze almost instantly w/o something underneath but you might be better with the cold, being from Green Bay and all.

    Knotty, nope, didn't have a UQ, or tarp, as I knew I was only going to be there for a short amount of time. Will be getting a UQ, and TQ soon.

    I love to hang in a snow storm, especially if there is little wind. The incredible silence is deafening.

    Must be nice to nap in a light snow in your hammock. We usually just get ice. Not very enjoyable to relax in. I may have to take a packing trip up north.

    Hey there KORPL. Greetings from Cincinnati. Love the sound of snowflakes hitting my tarp. Reminds me of what I would sound like if I studied my CW a little more!

    Happy Hangin
