Re: [Hammock Camping] Record low
- Dang, I was hoping to promote some discussion and a whole chain on
claims and you jump in with a -29°.
I was also hgoping to sneek out in my backyard one clear night with
overkill foam pads and really impress you Texas, Louisiana, Georgia
folks with a -20°. But I'd have to work to find a -29° spot.
Now how am I gonna make it into Guinniss?

then 2 4 8 you get a degree symbol ° .
