That’s pretty much how we set up too... quick comfy and lite
This weekend was the first time in colder weather...I don't know if it got freezing but if the ohio guys are cold it probably chilly ..I was fine with a heavy canvas/flannel sleeping bag as an "underquilt", cheapo mummy, and silk bag liner....woke up hot and had to unzip..

I switched to a hammock this year and can’t understand why I didn’t do it sooner.

It’s nice to be able to pack your whole camp set us in a back pack... We’ve been hammock camping for a while now and I can’t go back to a tent.... it’s nice waking up and not having to break down tents and air mattresses

Yea I didn’t notice much of a temperature difference between the hammock and a tent, especially if you keep your tarp down low to slow wind and trap heat. The underquitl plus a light sleeping bag and I’ve been cozy in temps to the upper 20’s

I was hesitant for a while also.... But dano made it easy with the bug bet and rain fly all available in a "kit". The mosquito have always kept me in a tent/bivy..
I keep hearing people refer to dano, I feel like I should know this person.
