Re: [Hammock Camping] Hard lesson learned, plus some questions
- Ya, TV, if you could have survived Saturday night, you could survive
just about any cold weather we get anywhere near here. I'm sure it
will go better next time.
I made it down to 34 degrees on a clear night with no tarp, so I feel
good-to-go on cold, but to me the big test will be rain. As in, can
I stay dry and happy under the tarp.
