RE: [Hammock Camping] My coldest night in a Hammock yet...and I survived!
My nephew used his Speer hammock in Iraq as well. Said it was much cooler in the desert tent than a cot. He’s now back in Germany . Let me add my voice to those who say ‘Thank You’ for what you’re doing in Iraq
Hope you will keep us informed of your next hammock adventure....Ed

I agree, my regular top entry Speer style would have been better.
However I left it in Iraq on this trip home. I had the HH just to
get it home really. I have been using the Speer style more because
it is easier to get in and out of and, I think, more comfortable for
everyday use (I sleep in it every night in Iraq ).
When I get home in May I will build a bona-fide hammock a-la Risk Z-
Hammock. I am knda limited on materials here. All I can do right now
is plan and buy, I have a huge list of goodies to build in May.
Only four more months!

sixties nickname conjuring the image of a self-assured rural person
who is proudly independant but wholly uninformed as to the
conventions of any 'reality' outside of the narrow confines of his
own traditions, habits, and individual quirks.
