Hammocking Tip

When hanging a hammock inside you will still need to insulate underneath if it gets cold.

I had a chilly night because I didn't prepare the hammock well.

Blankets on top kept me warm but a cool draft under the hammock, even inside, kept my back pretty cool and right on the verge of uncomfortable.

Tonight I'll throw a Wiggy's Poncho Liner under the hammock for added insulation.

Thanks for reading,

Thermarest or another blanket?

LOL! Both actually.

I've got a Ridgerest but don't like the feel of it against my back so I've got a fleece blanket in on top of that.

If it gets bad I'll just drop my wool blanket in there and call it good.

I find it useful to put blanket in hammock before getting in, then flip both sides on top of me. (like a burrito wrap!) Hope that helps, KM
