    Warm weather camping

    Going out next weekend and expecting 90* and lows in 65* I don't have uq or tq. Should I just sleep in fleece jammies and a long sleeve shirt? I wanna try wo a sleeping bag. Maybe a small thin blanket? Post ideas please.

    Try a poncho liner, or silk type blanket. Something very light,,I would think cotton would absorb any morning type moisture and get clammy. I have a couple of 50 degree top quilts, and couple of poncho liners for summer hanging that work great. O2 fans hung off RL will last about 4 hrs before batteries crap out to create a breeze that do nicely,

    I can't find it right now but I've seen a insulation temperature chart. I think it's in Ed Speer's book which I don't have access to right now because I'm at work. If memory serves me, above 75* you don't need anything. At 65* I would think you'd be comfortable with a light blanket. If it's wide enough you can always wrap it around you if you're too cool on the bottom.

    Try taking a light topquilt (a poncho liner works well, if you're intending to see if a quilt will work for you on the cheap) and a sit-pad-sized piece of CCF. If you start to get cold on the bottom around dawn, pull the CCF inside the hammock and stick it under your torso. It should keep you warm enough for the hour to two it'll be down in the 60s.

    It's worked for me, at least. Note, though that I'm a notoriously hot sleeper; most manufacturer's ratings for bags are off by up to 15-20 degrees for me.

    At 65, you will be miserable w/o something under you. Take a quilt or pad.

    I agree, anything below 70-75* I would recommend a light UQ.
