Then there is also the flip side of the coin. . .
I do most of my camping in the southeast mountains. Went on a car camping trip late October to James Island County Park (Charleston SC) with my family and another family (rookies). We were ground-dwellers for this trip although I did bring my hammock bliss double . I had a Sierra Designs Mondo 5 for my family set up and a borrowed air mattress for the wife and I to share . Temps had been fairly mild but we did bring the extension cord and a box fan. Turns out that weekend was 98* with night time temps in low 80's. The box fan only circulated warm humid air. Our borrow air mattress had a hole in it. So I got the idea to go get in my hammock. Disappointment set in when I found the wife of our 2nd family already in my hammock. Granted, it was a double, but I wasn't about to start that conversation. Hot humid air inside the tent was alot cooler than the heat I would have gotten from my wife the next morning!
Next time, bring more hammocks
