    Backyard Hang tonight!

    Testing out a modified mummy bag UQ tonight. Can't wait for the temp to drop, don't think I'll get to freezing temps but should get cold enough! I can't wait for the morning coffee in the Jetboil!

    Nothing like testing gear in the backyard. It's one of the things I love about hammocks. I'd never even consider it in my tent in the past. Giving up my nice, comfy bed for the ground was inconceivable. Now, it's a pleasure to give up the bed to try something new in the hammock for a night.

    It started raining here about 30 min ago. I grabbed my gear and headed out to the back yard I understand why my wife thinks I'm a bit "off" but I do it anyway....I just can't help myself.

    Good luck with the tattoo shop! When I was in Florida (1999 Ft. Lauderdale) I got a tattoo down there, I think it was Bruce Barts. It's time for new ink, it's been about 10 years...way too long.

    Setting up in the back or side yard is a great way to get a feel for new gear. And I'm sure my tarp setup has received a few funny looks from the paperman now and again.

    Hammock bug bit me pretty hard. I'm in the market for an UQ. Looking at the Arrowhead Jarbridge with either the 4 season or Apex Climashield upgrade. Really excited to get out in some snow expeditions.
