Hot Springs Campout Apr 23
- Coy, sounds like this weekend will be a bit cooler than it has been lately.
The weather service says: Fri 75/51, Sat 57/37 and Sun 55/37 with 30-40%
chance of rain Sat & Sun. That's about the same as our campouts for the
past two years! Better bring that extra pad! Maybe this will be one last
chance to test those cold-weather hammock setups!
We have about 15 confirmed campers and several day visitors already.
Expecting another 15 or so as well-so it should be a great get together...Ed

Subject: [Hammock Camping] cool down
Anybody seen the long range forecast for this weekend. Be
lately the lows have been around 45 to 50. i was just watchin the
weather and saturday night the expected low is 36. This is for
Northeast Al. I am planning (hoping)on attending the SEHHA in Hot
Springs NC. I wonder if it wont be even cooler in the mountains. I
was planning on using my newly modified Slumberjack Ultimate but I
think this may be too cold for it sans a pad.
I guess i better take a pad just in case. Cody is going also. I
wanted to fix another bag for him the same way but i am lery with
down. I will hopefully find a seamstress to tackle the job. sew it
on both sides close together then cut off the hood and sew some kind
of 'button hole" type cutout at the foot end. My experimenting
shows i need a slit about 4 inches for the hammock to pass through.
