    Now I am not a scientist, but

    I really did not think new Tadpoles could come out in the cold, and at night no less Snowing, and just at freezing, perfect day for a new tadpole to arrive at my post box with a nice stuff sack and skins to boot who Knew

    Now I had no choice but to set it up. And of course with a tarp there, it looked alone,so I HAD to put up the hammock... Came in to share my new pic and change clothes before I jump in for a test drive. Thanks to everyone at Wilderness Logics for the new tarp. Got it for summer, I hope the black helps out here where I live now, lots of sunshine. Looks slick, just covers the BIAS so it will take some practice to perfect the set up with this combo. Im lucky, 1st night I get a bad weather test right in the backyard thanks Mother nature, and Marty @ WL

    well, we got about 4 cm of snow last night here in the back yard. tarp held up great. To start it was more like sleet, very wet and heavy. Then to snow. It was neat. Nice and relaxing hearing the snow hit the new tarp. Did not sleep outside last night, but got a good 2 hour nap in tarp was covered this morning. no leaks , but I did learn a few things...
    "Camping" in this weather is actually fun, and also that wet dogs seem to be attracted to UQ's... time to look at a protector. breathable or waterproof???
