Well, I wasn't soaked, just my toes got wet. It did teach me that if you buy a tarp because it has doors on it, you should bring the durn doors.
But I'm bringing the Desert Rat Tarp and putting it down low---unless it really looks like its going to rain, then its the Hex ----and the doors. Might be worth the few extra ounces.
Here's where I am now:
That's skin out. Pack is going to be at about 30 pounds for the first night. Base weight is about 15.
Love that Gear Grams thing. Keeps me honest.
If I have to bring the Hex, that adds a pound, but if its going to be as warm as they say it is, I can get 10.2 oz of that back by leaving the down jacket to sleep in at home.
