Don't be afraid to deviate from Ray's standard plan, he even suggests considering so in the plan. Maybe consider a head hole, no sniveler style, and not sewing the fixed footsack and using Omnitape or Freemagic (Velcro) with a tie like on the JRB quilts. The 40 F quilt with a headhole just about eliminates having to carry much in the way of warm clothing for several months in some areas.
