2694Prototype VERY wide pad
- Aug 29, 2003In my camping over the last few months, using a 27 inch wide Target
pad and my quilt, I have occasionally found it hard to insulate myself
from the sides of the hammock, where there is no pad. Many times, I
have needed to pull the sides of the quilt around me to give some
insulation from the sides.
Today, I took one of my Target pads and a second one which I was
willing to sacrifice. I cut a width of 11 inches and full length from
the second pad, and then used contact cement to edge glue the strip to
the pad so that I now have a pad 38 inches wide.
This pad fits nicely in my 48 inch wide double bottom quarter weight
hammocks. I look forward to trying it out with my quilt on a nice
cool night sometime soon. I hope that I can now just use the quilt on
top of me, and not worry so much about trying to tuck it under me.
I also expect that I will be building a new quilt this fall. I want
to see how a one pound down quilt works in comparison to my 30 oz
That's the hammock experimenting I spent the day off working on.
Y'all have fun!
