    Thought about it, didn't do it...

    My ridge line thermometer registered a low of 16.3 in College Station last night.

    I didn't spend the entire night out, (never planned to do more than a few hours), but learned that my set up of just a DAM under me and a JRB No Snivler over me along with a top cover, hex tarp, and layered clothing gets me into the upper teens comfortably.

    There was a recent thread about Down Air Mattresses and I realized I had not used mine in some time so I thought I would check it out and it did great.

    I may give it another go tonight or later this week with either JRB Nest, Yeti, or IX... ...

    ... I've given myself too many choices.

    Let out of work early today due to no water and rolling blackouts throughout the district. Time to go hang my gear in the backyard and prepare for some testing!

    If I were not coughing every few mins I'd be tempted to go put up the rig just for a lie-down, but the husband is giving me the day off work, and I get 'the look' when I tell him about you guys testing situations...
    sigh.
    testing will have to wait for a wellness increase. you guys keep good records, okay?
