    I wish I could report that I slept like a baby; however, sleep did not come to me in my hammock, so there was no "breakfast in me hammock" this am. It all started out fine taking a while to figure how to negotiate my mummy bag into the hammock; with that done, laying diagonally I was very warm and cozy.Just great night to be out, maybe 40 degree. My pootch soon hopped in and went straight to sleep adding additional warmth. Yet, I was not so cumfy. I'm a side-sleeper and also a back-sleeper, so I'm on the move a bit of the night trying to get that "just right". With each move I get various pressure points from the hammock; shoulders, knees etc. readjusting the rig with each move. Around 3 am I decided some sleep was better than none so I baled for my bed. Even with a rough night I'm convinced that a hammock is the way to go, and I need to re-tool my gear to make it work. I'll be shopping for a top quilt, as the mummy bag is just too confining. All in all it was a great learning experience.
    I had this issue as well, but it was very warm where I was during the day and I found sleeping without a bag much easier. even if I "moded" the sleeping bag and only zipped it up a little to make a foot box I was still uncomfortable. I also have trouble with a pad. I found that without my Jack Russell, I like a slightly deeper sag (so I can lay on my side on a more extreme diagonal) and with the little guy I actually like a little less sag and my foot end just slightly elevated. I actually got a King Size topquilt during Marty's sale so I can have a bit more side coverage when Petey is in the hammock with me

    Edit: Just got my shipping notice for this (with 1 oz overfill), can't wait to rock it!

    Never thought of using a coat rack for my tarp.

    I had to leave , was pondering just setting off one sprinkler head to test it out..... What a sweet little- big tarp.. I got 12.6 oz. in the stuff sack with the skins.. When I first looked at the sack I was thinkin no way..
    But naturally it fit nicely....Think I'm gonna have a lot of fun with this baby.. Thanks Marty!!
