    a sock that rocks

    I got to try out my new Dream Hammock Winter Sock (untreated) and it is my favorite item in my backpack now. I always sleep cold and last weeekend froze at 37F.. last night it was 29F and i was toasty warm.

    Socks are great in winter whether on your feet or your hammock.
    Congrats!

    So when you use the sock with your WBBB, I guess you dont stake it out?

    Congrats on snagging the new warm spot. The DB cover adds several degrees to the inside of the hammock; I can only imagine how much a full enclosure (bit more wind cover for UQ) would add.

    Look forward to checking it out at the winter hang, or hopefully, a few impromptu hangs prior to the big event.
