Hammock Hanging

Hammock setup without the tarp

We are at the very beginnings of building up our backpacking gear. There is just so much you need to really get out there for any length of time. Fortunately, we do have some foundational pieces, like my Explorer Ultralite Asym Zip Hennessy Hammock. We want to get a Warbonnet Blackbird 1.7 as well so we both can hang.

I have been using sleeping pads for bottom insulation, but its pretty miserable in the middle of the night as it shifts and leaves cold spots. I bought a bunch of the JC Penny Down Puffer Jackets on clearance for $14 each, with the intention of DIYing a couple of underquilts.

They’ve been sitting untouched for months, but now I’m going to have to kick it into gear because we intend to join a group kayaking trip and camp the night before.
