This is in a Hennessy Ultralight Explorer, so the moquito netting keeps a lot of the heat in IMO.
Rest of the nights were in the upper 30's / low 40's and again couldn't use the sleeping bag because of it. I'm thinking about getting a light "sheet" and using it just to have something draped over me but not be too hot.
minus 17F with a 30F rated Snugfit and a 30F bag as quilt, and TOO hot? I know the Snugfit is rated conservatively, but that has to be a new record.
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
