    Second overnighter, first completion.

    Well the first time I called it quits. This time I came more prepared. Stole a pillow from inside and put my warm weather uq underneath my pod.. Got down in the mid 30s. Didn't use a tarp. Went to sleep around 1230 woke up at 11 :O I haven't fixed the peapod or uq with shoccord yet but I think the pillow fixed the cold spots. I really just wanted to get a night of sleep under my belt before I invested more in this. I could have woke up at z because I felt great.

    CONGRATS! Just takes practice which equals more hanging which equals more fun. Wow, sounds like a win/win.

    Glad to see you gave it another shot. I dread going back to the ground now.

    It'll get easier and easier. It is so much better to test your gear and know your limits than in it is to get out and have something go wrong.

    You slept 10 and a half hours? I'm jealous.
