    I liked that cover over the fire. That Exped hammock looked cool.
    Those socks were so warm for sure. The Exped was right good looking.

    Southerner that I am, I've never been in temperatures that cold. Coldest temperature I've witnessed was -2 degrees F and I was indoors for that one. The low end of my spend-the-night-outdoors comfort range is about 30 degrees (I call it being Southern, but no offense is taken if you call it being a baby!).

    Great video. Cool shots of the gear, too.
    To true.
    I grew up down South but have adapted to the White North frost.

    Sorry that you only made one night, that had to hurt leaving that behind.
    At least know one shouted "Is that the best you got!" in the middle of the night...

    Now I get to pack for my work trip next month.
    Looks like it's gonna be a bit chilly there as well with the "high" for the week reaching 0 F.
    Russian Cold-Buttocks, that should be fun.
    It was hard to leave the party for sure.

That was a **** fine fire though, it would have made me happy, for a while! The umbrella over the fire was the second biggest umbrella I’ve ever seen. Thanks for the most enjoyable video Mr Shug!
    My crazy pills stayed home...woulda been crazy not to go at all)))))

    Shug--excellent because it shows how to double up and get deep temps without use of a pod.
    I too would like to know the rating of the FrankenQuilt AND the sleeping bag you used as pod.
    Very impressive Mac didn't even have a hat on and loved the cover over the fire pit.
    4Dogs rig....who made it? Gotta try one of those!
    Franken-Quilt is good to 30º to 28º. My WM bag is a 20º.
    Pod system is all good in those temps. My feet were my warmest part on me. Nice.
    fourdog is in an Exped hammock and it looked inviting.
