    Your Plans to Stay Warm at The Hangout

    I did a test run last night and well honestly it was a bit chilly with the wind pounding me due to the lack of coverage with my ENO DryFly. So it came to me that I needed to worry alot more about staying warm. So I was wondering how others plan to stay warm. Clothing, drinks and foods of choice, quilts, bags, space heaters what have you.

    My setup will be

    Clothing-

    Patagonia Cap 3 base layer and Spyder upper
    Spyder Northface and Terramar thermal lower long underwear
    Northface Hyvent snow pants
    4 Pairs of Smart Wool socks
    2 pairs of Wigwam liner socks
    1 Lands End down vest
    1 Patagonia 750 down fill Jacket
    Northface Waterproof Shell with Liner Jacket
    Columbia snowgloves
    Fleece Liner gloves
    Body Glove beanie
    Wigwam Wool beanie
    fleece neck sock
    Merrell Goretex midtop hikers

    Sleeping-
    WM Summerlite
    Slumberjack Thermalite Extreme
    Prolite 3 inflated about 3/4 way
    OES Deluxe MacCat
    ENO DryFly

    Food and Beverage-
    Jetboil PCS
    Lipton sides

    If you enjoy enough of the Makers Mark, you may find that the blonde isn't quite as hot as you thought.

    Your Plans to Stay Warm at The Hangout

    I have a 40 year old, extra large, canvas covered, down filled sleeping bag that has at least six inches of loft. With the 2Q/ZQ #2 Mod Bugnet Zipper, I can get into this Jack-n-the-Beanstalk-Pod from the top... if the bag will even fit it in the Super Shelter Under Cover.

    It weighs 15 pounds dry. I'll need Doctari's wagon!

    I'm leaving the blonde at home so the hot water bottle in the hammock to warm things up will have to do.

    As best I can tell, you should do OK w/ that set of clothing.
    On the sleeping gear, I would bring a full length ccf pad to put under the inflatable.
    Are you planning to use one of the sleeping bags as an underquilt? I'm guessing that might be spreading your insulation a little thin.
    Are you bringing both tarps for wind protection?

    On the food... along w/ some stuff like you mentioned, I like to bring stuff high in fat, that requires no cooking so I can graze, keeping fuel in the furnace, like nuts & jerky (more likely the nuggets, which are softer to chew).

    Snug said Kit Kats work well in the cold. I have taken some candy bars that freeze so hard you could break your teeth on them
    don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!
