[Hammock Camping] Re: returning to hiking
- Wow! thanks for the ideas everyone. I had been looking at the
Speer site and thinking about the Hennesey A-sym too. Then when I
happened upon this group I thought I'd learn alot if I took the time
to read the archives before I made another purchase. I read about
sleeping on the diagonal before I got the Clark but I didn't realize
what an impact that would make on comfort. Experience is a great
teacher! But even with being a little cold and having to sleep on
my back, I was more comfortable than on the ground.
