    Forecast for Denver -10F

    My current low is -2F so hoping to get a bit lower tonight. Should be fun, none of my gear is rated for these temps.
    UQ 0F & SB 5F
    Plan to sleep in heavy wool socks, sweatpants with syn overpants, 100 microfleece with heavy wool
    anorak, smartwool gloves and Lamby hat.

    Backyard setup




    Hope to report a new low in the morning...

    So close to the -20F club.
    I think I came up with a line for my signature.
    "One has no trouble knowing where the edge of your UQ is when it's 19 below" -O&B

    My body was warm all night even with my usual 3 check-the-stars trips, re-warmups took about 5 minutes.
    Had a little frost on the BBO, used a shug-bib around the neck just laying on the sleeping bag so no frost on the bag. Very cool!
    About 2:30am I did suddenly wakeup with a little panic. Was having trouble breathing the cold air. Had to sit up
    in the hammock for 2-3 minutes. Then it just passed all was OK. Very strange I think it's an age thing. Sure sucks getting old.

    I was warm and could have gone lower with this kit but I seem to have an issue with breathing this cold air. Not sure what's up with that.

    Oh man, missed minus 20 by 0.3*! But rounding off? You be there Bro!

    Where is the 64* temp reading from?

    What thermometer is that?
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
    Romans 8:18,21-22

    Hi BillyBob,

    This Lacrosse is a home indoor/ outdoor with remote transmitter / indoor humidity realtime temps, no hi/low temp storage.
    So it could have hit -20F when I was a sleep, I'll never know.
    .
    The 64 F is the inside temp.
    When I would first bring the unit out of my SB it would read between 70F and 80F by the time I got the camera out it could be anything.

    If I was thinking better at 2AM I should have left the readout on top of the S-bag to see how much warmer it was under the BBO vs outside.

    The outside temp transmitter was in a stuffsack hanging on the foot end of the hammock outside the tarp.

    My nurse sense started tingling. You might think about getting a sleep test done. Seems like quite few of the "elders" are getting diagnosed with sleep apnea and such. Or it could just be the cold.
    For I know the plans I have for you, sayeth my wife.

    Money well spent is better than money not spent.
