    That's an amazing experience, but honestly, how we'll do you sleep in the harness and gear? I would like to try it, but I would expect a long night of tossing and turning in and out of sleep...

    I'm sure anything you post on the topic will be read and appreciated. Thanks

    Honestly? If I am solo I sleep way better above 20 feet. I posted a thread on here about my attempt to sleep next to the ground. When I entered the forest (which turned out to be a swamp) I got so terrified of werewolves and "three headed grizzly bears" that I ended up climbing a tree withOUT safety gear (stupid) and slept well. You know that feeling you get when you wake up to something big walking by your camp, you are instantly awake, heart racing, not wanting to move and give away your presence? Well that never happens up in the treetops, I will wake up for a moment then realize no creature can get me and fall back asleep.

    I have adopted the alpinist style of camping which is to sleep in the gear that kept me warm all day. My harness is soft and my clothes are already warm, I sleep well.

    So as a noob is this one more thing I should add to my list of things to check for before hanging my hammock?
    -widow makers
    -animal trails
    -trees sturdy enough to hold my weight
    -unexpected "weather"

    If you ever hear someone yell "THATS NOT RAIN!" from up in a tree I recommend you close your mouth and run.
