Cold is never fun... and I just hate when your there in the middle of the night thinking "can i put up with this? or should I get up and do somthing about it?"

Thanks for this. You're right about staying inside and suffering the cold rather than just getting out and fixing the problem. I tossed and turned for about 3 hours before deciding to fix the under quilt back up and that only took me 5 mins and made a huge difference. It's a down 3/4 length with petrel outer that I bought off the bushcraft forum in the uk but I never really knew how I should suspend it. I was just hooking a bungee at each end from corner to corenr over the ridge line. Those triangle things look great. I'll get myself a pair of those I think.
Same details as the first post, just delayed for this weekend (16th and 17th April)
Cloudy. Isolated showers. Winds east to southeasterly averaging 15 to 30 km/h. Overnight temperatures falling to between 6 and 11 with daytime temperatures reaching between 15 and 21.
Bateman, Phrayzer and Myself are in.... anyone else - more than welcome.
Other campsites on the route are available if the group opts to use them on the day.
Let us know the start time is a problem if your travelling.. we can delay the start time a little without issues.
