And on another note...
LD (r) is loving that ubber quilt BTW, it is the go to when in the cage and Mrs LD (her moto days are over) is not jealously hording it. On his first test moto over nighter he went with that UQ, a Primaloft mummy bag, and Kelty 12 X12 tarp...almost had no room left for food.
Soon after he purchased two AHE tarps plus a Hammock gear Incubator and Burrow. I am a backpacker from the 60/70s and just can't get over my obsession for down, ultimately nothing is more comfortable than quality down IMO. He would have purchased a full length Flamethrower UQ and TQ to go with the tarps but they don't exist (hint hint).
Were I spending more time in way damp climates there would be much investigation into a regular NR or the Jarbridge weighing the merits of space consumption and insulation. Probably the NR would win out simply because sleeping comfort wins out over pretty much anything else and ground pads (even for the foots) are of the Devil.
Mark is the name and If there is more than one way to understand what I just said....I meant the good one.
Earth First! We'll dirt bike ride the other planets later.
