    I posted something about that in Jan or Feb. I felt bad after missing Mt Rogers and had to catch up with everyone. My thermometer read below 0 with the news saying the wind chill was something like -10. Good to know that I can make it that low and still be comfy with my normal winter setup.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    Here is a thread where I talked about it with condensation issues. My memory was a little off. It was only 4 deg with a wind chill of -7. I think after a certain temp, all it is is very cold.

    I broke one of those too, at Mt. Rogers (not sub-zero). It broke as I tried to pull it out of the ground. I kicked at it to loosen it up, and it broke off at the ground level. The rest of the stakes came out ok, and the Outfitter I bought the stakes from replaced the stake for free.

    I use Hilleberg Stingers, which are titanium nails. Great pegs in frozen or very hard, rocky ground. Wheneven I use them I figure on grabbibg a good sized rock and pounding them in. Never had one bend yet.
