BUT, now that I have spent a couple of nights in the NX-250, I know for a FACT, the money spent is WELL WORTH IT!!!!!
The only down side to this is, my wife keeps asking when I am going to sleep upstairs in our bed.
Come on Spring, I am ready to take it to the woods to give it a full testing. So far, I love the addtion to my Kayak/Camping gear.
Get yourself a good underquilt and your Clark will truly be a 4-season beast, from a fellow Wisconsinite.
I've had mine for a few years and since the last two holiday seasons have been quite mild, I've slept outside on Thanksgiving and Christmas in NE Wisconsin on my mother's property when I go home for the Holidays, since her house is generally tight on space. During those trips, I only had a sleeping pad and I was comfortable. I'm soon going to invest in a 0 degree underquilt and then my cold weather Clark adventures will be toasty toasty! Have you seen the Trip planning forum for the Midwest? A couple other Wisconsin members are trying to get a trip planned for the spring.
