    Perhaps if it doesn't work overnight you can warm up some water from the hammock and then warm your boots up before you get out....Shug cooks his breakfast from his hammock so I don't see why this isn't doable.

    I was mostly posting this to see if anything about condensation would be brought up. I suppose that would be the only thing I have to lose is wake up to damp, frozen boots. But we are car camping (scouts campout) so I guess I will bring a second pair just in case.

    As a side not but along the same line (maybe this belongs in a different post). Has anyone tried one of these under their tarp to keep things warmer? http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/te...cat280026&rid=

    Some of our winter campers that use pulks are considering making a fully enclosed tarp with a wood stove in it. Turk already has one and it looks sweet for super cold expeditions.

    I've put my boots in Ziplock bags and then placed them in my hammock under my over quilt and they have been quite warm in the morning.

    Yeah I have been following that topic too, just brought this up cuz it would work when I camp with my wife in a tent. Also no needed modifications to the tarp. You would have to tend this less often. But to keep this thread on topic "hot water bottles" I will bring this up over there

    Done this many times up in freezing temps in the Wind River Range, WY

    I usually fill it up about 2/3 full with boiling water and just put the lid on tight, never had a leak. I usually end up taking it out after a few hours cause I get so warm...

    You can also do the same thing with a smooth river rock a little bit bigger than a baseball. Just throw it in the fire ring for a while and let 'er heat up. Not to hot though or you'll melt your socks, done that a few times too.

    Only if that rock hasn't been near a river in a long time. River rocks can absorb water, and then when you throw them in the fire they have a tendency to explode. Not exactly a good way to start your evening...

    In hot weather a cold bottle can have a nice cooling effect.
