This weekend I did an overnighter on the AT here in NJ. What a sleep! I used the wallyworld egg crate pad cut down to 2/3 the original size. The pad was perfect I used it two weeks ago full size and it was a pain, interefered with the HH opening. Cut down was perfect, didn't interfere with anything, kept me nice and warm, my legs off the pad was fine because the sleeping bag doesn't really compress. My buddy slept with out the pad he was cold, oooh to bad, hehe. He's getting a pad!
I'm getting there the learning curve is flattening out!
