    Thermometer for Recording Temps

    I've been thinking about going out in my backyard and doing some set ups and tests before going out into the trails in the cold. My questions are do you guys know of any thermometers out there that record lows? That way when I wake up in the morning I know exactly how cold it was and how I reacted to that so that I could make adjustments if needed.

    I thought Shug had one in one of his videos but not 100% sure.

    Thanks

    This would be the one. The only thing I wish it had was a lighted face.

    Thanks Shug. I appreciate that. You notice any trouble with recording lower temps. Does it "freeze" up at all or stop recording at a certain temp. I mean I would imagine if you are using it up in Minnesota it would be fine for me down in Georgia.

    I guess if testing at the house that would be acceptable but if I was testing away from the house I need to go with the first option. It would be good to know how cold I got to at night.

    You can see it at 1:45 in this video. Got down to almost minus 20
    I put the transmitter on the end of my tarp and the receiver in my pocket at night. Records high/low.
    3 aaa batteries.
