I'm planning a trip out to Colorado in July. The trip includes 10 days of dirt-bagging in the Mosquito, Sawatch and San Juan ranges. Basically motor to a trail head, sack out and hike trail the next day before motoring to the next TH.
I'd like a reality check regarding gear from those with some local knowlege. Its car camping so weight is not an issue but I'm flying out so gear adjustments will be limited to what I bring along.
According to Weather.com, mid-30s overnight to be expected.
For my shelter kit I'm planning on taking the following:
REI SubKilo 20deg down bag (use a TQ)
1.9oz DIY Gathered end
Poncho Liner (UQ or TQ as needed)
Insulbright UQ (team up with PLUQ or use as UQ with PL in TQ mode)
12x9 full coverage tarp (can be pitched with "doors closed")
A bit of specific info: I've used the REI bag and PLUQ in the mid 30s and have been too hot on top. On the bottom I was ok.
Any suggestions or advice would be very appriciated.
