Ok, bring on the cool(ish) FL fall weather... PLEASE! After winning my down UQ at the big hang raffle I have fallen hopelessly in love with down and I finally found a deal for a TQ! GoLite has a 1 season/40F (aka 3 season in FL) 800 fill TQ on sale ($119) that was finally in my price range... well, technically it was still a bit high but too good to pass up as I was getting ready for this hang and I was thinking about another backpacking trip with my old, extremely bulky and very heavy sleeping bag. Shipping was free too! I jacked the a/c up (or is that down?
) to 72 and used it last night. Mmmmmmm... ahhhhh... I love it
Next up is making a small/light sil tarp. My back is already thanking me and I'd bet that I'll be able to fit my TQ/UQ, tarp (and maybe my hammock too) into the space that my old sleeping bag used to take!
Is it November yet?
I'm just back from a short vacation but I'll get the gps track posted soon for those that might not be able to make it on the hike out with me.
edit: I just looked at the forecast and it looks like I might be sleeping outside starting this weekend and Monday's overnight low in the upper 40s!!!!
