    Getting the "hang" of things in Shenandoah

    Hey all. I am starting my 3rd year of section hiking on the AT. I have spent my life outdoors either, hiking, camping, hunting or fishing. I have been on the PCT a couple times as well.

    I just made the switch from tenting to hammocking in my new HH UL A-Sym Zip. So far I have set it up in the backyard a few times in about 40*. Tried to sleep in it last night but after 2 hours of restlessness, I bailed for the bed. I was using a emergency blanket topped with a felt type blanket, topped with a yogamat from Target. I was donning a 40* mummy as well. All was great till I tried to sleep on my side and it all slip out from under me. The combination seems about right and with some of the research I have done here, I think I will be able to build my own pad with shoulder wings using some CCF 1/4", emergency blanket, felt, all sewn together with the material they use for ironing boards. Seems indestructible and is aluminized for additional reflectivity.

    I also just purchased 8 yards of 30D silnylon to make my own XL Hex tarp. Well that's all for now. I am sure to be posting, asking questions, and hopefully providing some advice in time. Thanks for everything so far!

    Welcome! Sounds like you'll be hooked in no time short to the D.I.Y. portion of this forum... it's addictive. Trust me, I'm speaking from experience.
