    I'm in NYC, so I can sypathize with the sticky heat situation. Looking forward to my very first hang in 2 weeks up in Roscoe County. Looks like the nights are getting down in the low 60's, which is sweet.

    Feels funny complaining about heat as I'm about to buy a 20* UQ...

    Most of the ones I've bought online, have been bought from Hammocks Rada. The value there is tough to beat! They don't sell the high-end Mayans, but they sell some that approach the higher standard. This is probably my favorite site during holidays and birthdays, since the majority of the gift hammocks I've given have come from that site.

    All my backyard Mayans have come from there.

    In answer to all this I would either head home from the trail OR find a nice shady tree near a lake and stay there for the rest of the day. Just hang the hammock. In the evening when it gets a little cooler I would just pack up and go as far as I can until dark. Maybe a little more with a head lamp. Actually, unless someone has a different idea, skip the sleeping at night and sleep during the day. Guard the hammock from the sun though.

    Yep I keep several of my favorite movies on my tablet for emergency boredom times.

    Got a Warbonnet RidgeRunner Hammock for the wife for her B'day today. Set it up to day for her in the backyard as a surprise. She went out to look at, got in it for a couple of minutes and said she really liked it but it was too d*** hot and went inside to the AC.

    Fogged up glasses

    Spent friday and saturday nights in a natl. forest near here. Was like being in a rain forest. Got in the hammock for the night about 8 Pm, and reached into the shelf for my glasses, book and headlamp.
    When I put on my glasses, they were fogged up....I had to wait a bit til they stopped fogging up. That, my friends, was one hot and humid evening.

    I decided a few hours ago to pack up my hammock that is in the backyard. It has been at least 90 degrees with 90 percent humidity for the last 2 weeks.
    Wonderful irony, a huge thunder storm is rolling in, it is going to be nice and cool and rainy for the next 2 days.
    Bad timing
