    Can't wait to put all my gear together and Winter hang! Last time I joined the Michigan group and slept in my car. It was fun and inspirational!

    I don't know what it is about hammock forum members and cold weather
    but we all sure like to hang when the temps dip. I love it.

    its way to fun, especially when it works out

    It's always great to test those lows and see where it can take you.

    What size did you make your DIY and how much does it weigh as a result? M50 looks very interesting as a fabric, but I haven't had a chance to try it yet. What specific things do you like in it over other DIY/hammocks you've tried?



    the 5-oh is crazy light. 5oz I think. I made mine 9.5 ft to start with. gathered up its around 9ft its by far my most comfy hammock

    Just curious: Are you a cold or warm sleeper? Did you get your incubator stock or overstuffed? Thanks and congrats!

    my incubator is stock. I would say I'm average. I don't sleep hot for sure.

    I know crazy huh. my wife sure gets a kick out of it...

    My friends think I'm a bit daft for even wanting to go hiking in the winter, let alone hammock camp. I just did one in the high 30s (laughable to some of you, I know) and am aiming for a hang when there's snow on the ground. That will be an adventure for sure!

    Winter is nearly here: Big Sandy WY minus 18F at 0800, current temp zero F.
    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.

    If you don't mind me dragging this slightly off topic -- what model & brand thermometer are you using? I'm looking for something along the lines of the one you pictured...

    Or if anyone else wants to chime in with suggestions, that would be appreciated!

    Thanks!

    I have the same one - it works well and is cheap (under$10). It's an Acu-Rite:
