    PLUQ is a fine and inexpensive way to get started and for decent temps. I haven't got an uqp yet, but have ind mind to get on to supplement my pluq.
    Should work really well. Slept with my pluq a few nights ago, kindda windy, down to 40 with just the pluq and I was fine. Factor in the windblock of an uqp and you could probably be fine down to 25-30.

    Was hoping this thread would take off the pluq and uqp are the two things I have been looking at to get where I'd like to be inexpensivly. Thanks again

    I am also relatively new to hammock camping, located in Southern WV, and am hoping to make a few fishing trips in the spring. I started with a Grand Trunk as well. It is a Skeeter Beeter Pro and will be sticking with it for a while.

    A cheap piece of gear that can be used is a military poncho and liner. The liner doubled over will function as an underquilt. Two liners can be used for added warmth. The poncho will serve as the quilt protector. The gear is multifunctional. It can be used as rain gear, jacket (with liner), tarp, underquilt, pack cover, sleping bag, overquilt, and more. The cheapest way to go is a foam pad but I hate how they move around and bunch up in the hammock, however they do work.

    Well looks like thanks to the advice on this thread and a person being very generous and finding a bunch of us poncho liners on the for sale thread I am gonna be making 2 PLUQ's. I believe I am still going to invest in a 2qzq uqp just for some added wind protection. Gets a little windy and cold on our trip to the cranberry river in April every year. Gonna do a few local camp out hangs maybe late febuary. Come on spring!!!
