Last Friday it started snowing and continued until Sunday evening. And with gale force winds the snow blew into drifts. In some places there was no snow on the ground and in others it was up to 2 metres deep. Teres took this picture as I cleared the snow on Saturday
and there was at least the same amount again on Sunday!
One problem that I; and most probably many others have when sleeping in a hammock, is that the sleeping mat doesn’t stay in place and I end up with a cold back.
I have tried making several designs to hold the mat in place with limited success
but recently I found a Halti Travel Sleeping Bag on sale on the internet and though that I could put both my thermarest and sleeping inside it.
Here is more information about the bag; https://halti.com/collections/sleeping-bags-mattresses/products/smart-travel-sleeping-bag
Unfortunately, with both the thermarest and my sleeping bag inside, there was insufficient room. So I came up with a solution to the problem, and with help of our sewing department at work, they are now making alterations to the bag. My solution is (on the back side of the bag) to sew a pocket at the top and bottom of the bag and a band of material across the middle, into which the therarest is inserted. It will only be my sleeping bag that is then inside the bag.
The bag is not yet finished, but I will put up some pictures here as soon as it is completed.
