Re: Space blankets instead of newspaper?
Using clothes inside the bag seems like a good idea, except possibly
garmets with zippers that might puncture the plastic.
Yesterday, I tried wrinkling up a space blanket, and S-folding it to
fit into my plastic bag. The space blanket holds its wrinkles pretty
well. Unfortunately, it wasn't cold here (central NC); but at 50
degrees the hammock was warm enough with just street clothes while I
read a Newsweek magazine.
The space blanket idea might be a keeper.
