Re: Experiments -- long
I was a poor scientist on my vacation. I failed to bring a
thermometer, so I don't know how cold it was. I'd estimate that it
was no colder than the high-sixties.
By "between the layers" I refer to the construction of the Tropical
Hammock. It has two layers, sewn together at the ends and along one
edge. It has a casing at either end, through which a cord is passed
to suspend the hammock.
I slip the pad between the layers. I think this is probably the
ideal configuration for using a pad.
Geez, I'm sorry to hear that about a park I enjoy. It really must
depend on the personality of the ranger you encounter. I pitched my
hammocks in several places, including the edge of the forest just
behind the cabin. It wasn't obvious, but it was clearly visible to
anyone who looked. I guess the "wrong" ranger just never looked.
Stealth is important. And that makes LNT doubly important.

us out of the cabin--he was most unhappy about a hammock tied to a
tree in his park and would not listen to any reasoning!
