Sleep Tight

Spring camping, gotta keep warm at night, no matter how foolish you look. Although I think I look pretty damn good in this photo, for the 3.6% of me that you can see anyways! I can see why Michelle sticks around, she’s a pretty lucky girl…

Ok, all kidding aside, it was very cold on our trip to Vixen lake last weekend, the temperatures dipped below 0 (celsius) overnight. It’s important to have proper gear to avoid hypothermia and a mummy bag with a hood can help acheive sufficient warmth. This mummy bag by Marmot, the Trestles 30, is a -1 rated bag (30 Farenheit) and on it’s own it was not very warm at these temperatures. The addition of a bag liner definately made the nights sleep a little more bearable. Ellen, Anthony and Michelle all had fleece liners, I had a synthetic bag liner from Sea to Summit. Although they were all cozy in their fleece bags, I still found my sleep to be slighly uncomfortable due to the chill in the air. Regardless, I was able to sleep and we were sufficiently prepared.
