    Find a sheltered spot for your hammock far down the slope from the formal group camping area. When you leave the group campfire at the end of the evening, go down the hill to your hammock and fire up your stove to heat some water. Put the water bottle or bladder of choice (proven non-leaking) in your foot box. Then, RUN, up the hill to use the porta-potty (hope there isn't a line; if so, improvise​), then go back down and tuck in for the night. Start out warm, stay warm.

    I do it all the time. I have poor circulation in my feet and with the boot liners on my feet stay warm. If they get too warm I kick them off and keep them next to me to keep them warm. I absolutely canít afford to step into a cold boot in the morning so this really helps me. And as you asked it is easy enough to slip into the boots when nature calls in the middle of the night.

    I use Wiggy's Booties. They also make Sleeping Socks. Both have a drawstring to keep them on your feet. They are light weight and work well. I rarely wear socks at night. Wiggy's website.

    Boot liners have worked very well for me in the hammock, especially on those nights when I need to supplement my quilts with a bit more insulation.
