    Nesting Tricks From An Old Coot

    ===> Nicely done, Pan! Great write-up, encompassing some good issues!

    I recommend a 'sticky' for this one'

    This article by the esteemed Peter pan was what motivated me to to stop lurking and become a HF member. As the nights have grown longer and the temps dip lower, it is worth a re-read.

    Thanks again for the wisdom Peter pan.

    Thanks for touching the article and bringing it to the top. It is good advice though sometimes hard to implement at an established campsite.
    Thanks,

    Naaah. Mine got me down to 10F without trying hard. Just use the instructions above to get the UQ properly sealed - gently but not loosely.

    If you suspect the wind is robbing warmth, then maybe reposition with different trees or by hanging the tarp to block it. I like a doored tarp year round - the Wilderness Logics Old Man Winter is a marvel.
