    Getting ready for a hammock camping trip. I am bring three family members on this one and I do not have enough tarps in my arsenal. So I ordered 24 yards or so of ultralight silnylon and went to work. Tarp number one took a bit of time but I have it down now. The next two will be much easier. Seems to stretch out quite nicely. This little bugger is ten feet by eleven feet and weighs next to nothing. Pete

    I took my Underground Quilts 40F top quilt on an overnighter on Vermont’s Long Trail and slept in a shelter with 5 others on a Therm-a-rest Neoair pad. Plenty of ground insulation but I was quite chilly at 50F with a slight breeze. I’d have been toasty warm in my War Bonnet Blackbird with 40F UGQ underquilt. Sleeping on the ground sucks!
