    I will be overnight hanging tonight...1st time!!!

    Well I got my NX-250 on Thursday & now I have it all set up in the woods behind the house... supposed to be in mid to upper 30's tonight, windy & possible rain showers... should be a great test.

    Just put some clothes, like I would typically have along on a hike or canoe trip into the pockets underneath & am using a +20 bag. Hope I sleep like a baby

    Nice to know if I start to freeze, I can just walk up to the house & crawl into bed with the wife

    Rock on, dude. Backyard testing is the best. I do find myself bailing often around the "pee at three" point. I always have to pee at three. Sigh.

    I also had a case of the pee at three which would send me to my bedroom comforts. On my 4 day outing on the AT I learned the "lean" allowing me to stay in the hammy and pee out the side. Best thing since buying it!

    As the owner of a 1994 Cadillac Sedan de Ville, I have perfected the "gangsta lean." However, I have not learned the "gangsta lean" to pee out of my hammock. In the words of Bob Marley, I just "Get up, Stand up."

    You will be fine, and you will find out how valuable the weather shield is as well, amazing how much heat it holds in.

    Right angles, horizontals, and perpendiculars.
