tips... I often see temperatures in the high 90s with humid in the high 70s
and greater at times. I've also slept in the Belizean Jungle...
Tip #1: Sleep nude.
Tip #2: Pitch the 'wings' of the rain fly high to improve ventilation. If
no rain is expected, remove the fly.
Tip #3: An empty misting bottle hung from your pack can be filled with cool
water and hung from the ridge cord. A few squirts on your nude body, the
netting, and the hammock bed itself, will create some evaporative cooling
that can be very refreshing.
If you follow tips 1 and 2, you probably won't need 3... I predict that you
will be VERY comfortable - and far more comfortable than anybody who might
be sleeping on the ground near you.
