    Another Cold Snap Coming, Anyone Doing Some Gear Testing?

    I just checked weather.com and in Cincinnati it is going to be a low in the single digits or close to it Saturday night through Wednessday night. With Monday night looking the coldest. Anyone up for another round off testing?

    I missed the campout and the sub zero temps. Although I have been eating a lot of smores lately . I have a DIY hammock and tarp I want to put to the test. I also want to try out a torso ccp vs the full length.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    i believe we may be getting some pretty low temps here next week, so if i can get something new finished by then i may take advantage of the cold snap too.

    I haven't checked the expected lows here yet, but if it's cold and I've finished my next big project (hopefully I can get it done over the weekend) I'll be hanging!

    Someone at work said Tuesday night is gonna be the coldest night yet here. I let it slip that I need to test some gear...got some funny looks, had to explain that I need to see how cold my gear can take me, etc. First words out of their mouths? "He's crazy." "Uh huh." "I wouldn't do that."

    Nothing like being comfy in a warm hammock, though!
