    after trip care of peapod

    After a backpacking trip, do you guys air out your peapod? (hang it out to dry?) If so, how long do you keep it out before storing it? (also, do you hang it up, across a couple of chairs etc?--)
    FYI: If you want to know what type a certain bear is, sneak up behind it and kick it. Then,
    run like crazy and climb up a tree. If the bear climbs the tree and eats you, it's a black
    bear. If the bear just pushes the tree over and eats you, it's a grizzly bear : )


    Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me, either, just leave me alone.

    Yes, for as long as it takes to dry completely, usually just overnight. Typically I place it over a large wingback chair.
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy

    After drying, I hang mine in a rolling, cloth sided hanging rack in the guest bedroom... there it stays, along with the rest of my meager collection of down gear.

    I hang mine in the garage for at least a day or two, depending on the weather

    I just lay it out on a bed in a sunny room, or over a chair by a window, with darkest fabric towards the Sun. I might leave it all day but a couple of hors is probably all you need, unless it was really wet in the down.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
