The Hennessy Hammock ( Home for the night )


Emergency blanket / tarp worked really well with keeping me warm on my back 15$ Bucks at REI


Air mat on the bottom, Foam mat, Emergency blanket, and a 3 layered military sleeping bag


Woke up around 11:20 A.M. after a goodnights sleep and no cold spot.

Morning Time
‎11:23 A.M. What a good nights sleep. No cold spots!, back, hands, feet, and even my face stayed warm. The only thing is when you breathe and its cold frost developed around things the emergency blanket and the gore tex bivy cover had some frost. Next time I will make a way to have my breathe exit without gathering on anything. The things you learn through practicing and preparing.

Hiking in the snow is cool cause you can see tracks from other animals like deer, rabbits, mice, I think it was Bobcat tracks in there.. something with claws anyways...

Around midnight I saw the best shooting star ever. It was a greenish blue light ball heading to the earth. It was awsome.
A nice cold beer chillen in the house was sure nice.
