    I think that is some of picking up the ball.
    As this is a Deep Winter Hang it is very important to be on the ball as well.
    I know that folks get excited and come to these without ever having hung in their hammocks in these temps and some find out that they just aren't prepared. We had temps -15º last year. Not fun if your not outfitted properly.
    That said....I can't say that I can pick up the ball either at this point but will do what I can to make sure folks have a goodly and safe hang.

    I'm pretty sure it belongs to fourdog. I can send him a message on FB if that will help.

    Thanks....I will reach out to him if needed. May try to find and buy my own.
    fourdog has been AWOL for a long time. Never heard or saw from him again after he hosted that one Winter Hang.
    Did he get miffed at us all?
    Just always wondered as I always enjoyed his company.

    Have fun guys! I'm quite new to winter hammocking, but considering you guys have similar temperatures to what I get here in Quebec, I'll follow your hang closesly, in order to learn new stuff. Looking forward to your stories/pics and maybe Shug's Vidéos!

    I was a newb last year and Stairguy came over to me and made sure I was setup to handle the cold temps. He checked out out my hammock setup to the clothing I was wearing.
