    You had single digits in Stokes? That's awesome! Nice looking quilt. I'll have a Loco Libre one day...

    Good job! IMO single digits is where it starts getting "cold" and need to start focusing on getting things right.

    lol I wondered where you guys went. My plans were evolving right up until the last minute but I thought I might drop by and say howdy at Bald Rocks. Some scouts showed up and used the shelter... 3 adults and 5 young fellows. BTW the trails were in superb condition, packed down perfectly and absolutely sublime with microspikes.

    That LL quilt is a beaut! Looks as warm as it performs.

    Thanks!

    I checked with my buddy with the thermometer, and it was 8.6 degrees, which rounds to 9. Call me a liar for one degree!

    Are you related to Bob Moulder?

    lol at those temps I'll cut ya some slack!

    Single digits are when the snow is squeaky when you walk on it. The best.

    I are he! I'm registered with the group and have done a few walks. However, I generally like to put in a few more miles of hiking and then meet up.

    Congrats on your new personal best. 8 degrees is dammed cold. Sounds like you had a nice warm sleep in your hammock kit. Did you take anymore picts? I will never get to visit Stokes Forest.

    Sorry, OutandBack, I couldn't work my iPhone camera with my gloves on, and it was too cold to take them off!

    Stokes is nice, but you've got the best of it with the Lost Creek Wilderness.
