    Yep - I'll probably use the the GHPC for at least the head end so I can have my pack and stuff handy. I probably won't need the sit pad with the MWUQ so I can put that down at the foot end to block anything coming thru...as long as I don't kick it out while I sleep. Haven't gotten a field night with the BMBH yet so I don't have all this worked out yet!

    I have got to stop making quilt for a while. At least until I can get a better place to store them. Quilts and sleeping bags take up an entire closet. This is in no way a complaint by the way.
    I know I'm going to be jealous of the Mt Washington hangers at Mt Rogers.

    Yes and No. In a gathered end, the fabric is all "bunched up" and usually covered by my UQ, so a single layer of 1.9 is really folds of 1.9, whereas in the bridge, a single layer of 1.9 is a single wall of 1.9, can't be covered by a quilt, and there is a lot of breathing through that straight wall of fabric if the wind hits it. Great Hammock, but the gear hammock/pack cover or slowhikes "storage end covers" are recommended (by me, anyway) for winter use on the BMB.

    Well, you know if you have too many, I'm sure I could help you out there.

    So Joker got in trouble we couldn't go camping this weekend, but it was supposed to be like 60F at night. Tonight? 18F!! Friggin no-snow-blizzard for Fayetteville!! Guess who's sleeping in the backyard with a brand new MWUQ...

    Is it odd that this excites me?

    Report ASAP! Which hammock, gathered end or BMBH?
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    It's already on the BMBH so probably that one...I'll decide when I move the stand outside.

    I did about 18 or 19*F last night, with lots of wind, with a WBBB, and was OK. I'm pretty sure I did not have the foot end set up just right, but I was OK anyway. It is hanging on the BMBH now, it is supposed to be mid 20s tonight.

    I was more excited to get out this weekend than any in a long time because of the cold. Mule was talking about camping out 20+ yrs ago simply because it was forecast to be -20*F and wanted to see "what that was like"

    Hangers are "abynormal" and we like it that way!
