More Ventilated Pad
- I can vouch for the soldering iron method, made some flip flops from blue foam and the iron worked great, don't breath the fumes.Just picked up some of the non-skid, foam covered nylon mesh (at Lowes) that keeps area rugs from sliding around. Has anyone attempted to use this as an insulating pad? I think it would do a decent job trapping air. Comes in two thickness', about 1/8" & 1/4". The 2' x 8' pad of the thin stuff folds into a pretty compact bundle (compared to a blue pad)Light'ning-----Original Message-----

C.D. Pritchard did,
http://home.chattanooga.net/~cdp/hammock/hammock.htm . I don't know
how well it worked for him... I would use the soldering iron to melt
the holes instead of using some sort of punch.
I have found that non-wicking fabric between me and the vapor barrier
beneath me keeps perspiration moisture in a reasonable check.
(Turning on ones side from time to time doesn't hurt either.)
