    I was actually thinking it was pretty fast considering it was international shipping. I ship things from VA to Canada (New Brunswick) all the time and they average about 21 days and longer at Xmas.

    When I first started out I used a large gossamer gear pad and a synthetic sleeping bag that got me down to 40*. I was able to find a used Jacks R Better Nest which so far has taken me to 35* Underquilts are so much nicer to sleep with than pads. The Nest is made specifically for the classic bottom entry, but also fits my DIY gathered end hammock. I have an underquilt protector made by 2QZQ which I just push aside to get into and out of the hammock. Arrowhead Equipment also makes the Potomac underquilt which I understand works with the bottom entry HH. Hennessey also makes the Supershelter, but I haven't used it.

    I hang the Noah's 12 several ways. Sometimes I use it with one side down and the other up in porch mode using my trek poles, sometimes I bring both sides way down, and sometimes I bring the first tie outs in like doors. It's a really versatile tarp, but not lightweight. I will be adding a smaller tarp but won't get rid of my Kelty.
