I slept outside for 9 nights in January 2017 in my homemade setup: 4 in Asheville, NC, 3 in my back yard, and 2 at the New Jersey Winter Hang. I stayed warm, slept some with a dog, and had a branch rip through my newly sewn winter tarp. It is all in the name of fun, so I repaired my tarp and kept hanging.
