    I've sent you a pm if you're still interested in some LDPE foam. It was surprising how big a 2000' roll is...

If you laid two pieces of 5 mil PE sheeting down and laid on top of it you would not have any where near an R value of 1.5 that was stated. Also something I forgot to mention in the other thread was PE sheeting has diminishing returns, so 4 layers would not necessarily get you an R value of 3
    Thank you Yetee - I get it now regarding the PE sheeting with the spacing in between, makes much more sense. Sorry if I derailed the thread, but when I was young and dumb in the 70's I've slept on visqueen on packed snow - it was just like laying directly on packed snow, except you don't get wet. Getting that first ridgerest was like - WOW!.
