Best trick she ever taught me. If I'm right about the 'friend' in question, I laughed at her when she pulled her 'shower' out of her pack. Still have the taste of my words in my mouth from having to eat them. It has become one of my favorite little tricks. Although, these days I just carry an extra lid with holes opposed to carrying a totally separate shower bottle.

But, when the weather is bad (hot, cold, or wet) site selection can be the difference between and good night and a rotten one. I remember being very cold one night somewhere in NC. I finally got to the point that I couldn't take it anymore and went in search of a better location. A whole 40' away, up the hill a little, I noticed a big difference in the ambient temp. I moved my hammock and tarp and snoozed through the night. I guess I was originally camped in an area that was collecting the cold air. A little higher on the slope and all was well. It pays to pay attention.
