Comparing Backpacking Sleep Systems
Watching these videos on YouTube and thinking about what I like to do got me to thinking that perhaps I should maybe give up my hammock for a bit and revisit sleeping on the ground. Cutting a few pounds off my pack sounded fantastic as I am already at a disadvantage carrying fishing gear, especially my wading boots and neoprene socks or waders. This would be a cheap experiment as I already have all that is needed besides the polycro groundcloth which you can see in the link is very cheap. So I put all my kit together, an 8X10 silnylon tarp, polycro ground cloth, 40 degree quilt and a thermarest zlite sleeping pad. Here it is set up in the backyard.
