      yep, it was chilly last night. I did a little gear checking (not
      with my hammock though) with a pad and 2 bags last night. I stayed
      out till 3 AM but my nose was really cold so I came back to the
      house. It was real windy at 10 PM when I went out but not that windy
      at 3 AM. I should have used my full face boggan instead og the
      bomber hat i used. the bomber hat is the warmest hat i have but it
      dont cover my face. i could have used bout anything over my face but
      forgot to take something with me for that. you'd think i wouldnt
      forget something like that. OH well my bag setup was warm. Only
      problom I really had was getting both bags zipped up over my
      shoulders and then I couldnt do nothing but lay there. I had laid my
      down jacket over my mid section and when i got all zipped in i
      decided i needed it for a pillow worse. took me another 10 minutes
      to redo everything. In a hammock I dont have to worry about the
      pillow so i wasnt thinking when I first got situated... It was 24
      when I left the house and 12 when i got back. it droped on down to 9
      this morning. now back up to 18 though and not sposed to get as cold
      tonight (only 17 or so) I am going to try the hammock with both bags
      tonigh. tried just one bag monday night and got cold at 22 (15 f
