my first hang
well you guys may know im sort of new to this whole hammock thing. I found the site about 2 months ago. since then i have bought a hh safari with hex tarp i still have no quilts or any thing but i hung this weekend along the yougheny river. temps where in the low 20s to cold to sleep in so my daughter (9) i slept in the Adirondack shelter. but it was a great place to nap in the daytime 30s-50s i am truly a convert now. anything you can hep me to about the hh i would appreciate it
spring for the super shelter. I would not have advocated that until I actually did it. Under field conditions it works quite well and some folks have had it augmented to very low temps. I am a fan now.
I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

Welcome to the hanging gang.
Lots of solutions to bottom, including sides, insulation...Study up, make a plan for yourself, get some, test it, use it and enjoy.....Please, no more shelters
