    Michigander and proud

    Quigleyman here. I'm new to camping, newer to lightweight backpacking, and newest to hammocking....only got about three nights in one.

    I own one hammock, a Grand Trunk Ultralight in camouflage. I love it. I got it mainly for the price, ($15 on amazon) cause I couldn't afford an ENO doublenest in olive/khaki. I use amazon microropes with toggles. (LOVE THEM) I have a green 9.5/12 chinook tarp. (again cause i couldn't afford what I wanted...silnylon $35 vs about $90) Homemade bug net.

    I used to ground camp, so I have a blue ccf pad. Amazing pad...soo comfy for me both on the ground and elevated, but my problem with it in the hammock is sweat. I freeze at about 2am and never recover. I made a sweet reflectix pad....same problem. I don't want much to do with underquilts, at least till I get down to single digits. I NEED HELP WITH MY PAD SITUATION. (also have no money)

    any suggestions for my pad problem are greatly appreciated.

    Welcome aboard and to the MI group. I would say you would be best with an under quilt. Wouldn't cost you much if you went with a synthetic or an old sleeping bag conversion.
