    I really miss those big trees. What size tree straps do you carry? (just curious)
    Thanks, them Crows do good work! I wear a size 50L dress coat so the regular Incubator just fits...not alot of wiggle room left. If you are a normal (non mutant) sized human a stock Incubator would work wonders.

    Trees; in the first pic the tree right in line with my front tire is a baby Redwood (not kidding). Most in this area are Ponderosa pines and they get big too. Not too far down the road (shown in the last pic) are a grove of adult Redwoods (Trail of 100 Giants) that would take at least 40' straps. I use the WB Adjustable Webbing and seek smaller trees.

    thx for sharing the pics
    It is a blessing to live in an area where there is work (sorta these days) and almost any eco system you want is within two hours ride. Lest it seem like I am complaining about the Incubator size, it was toasty warm down goodness and functioned very well. I am beginning the process of convincing that a wider Incubator is needed.

    WHOOO BUDDY indeed! Had the HF Yodel just escape before I knew it in the morning. The sun was shining through and between fast moving clouds and the aroma of the piney (and Redwoody) woods mingled with pine firewood, from the only other occupied camp site there, was intoxicating. The creek was way high and seranading me all night with Stellar Jays in the trees above me. Had a big mug of breakfast tea, with original beef jerky, dried cherries, and granola bars from the hammock. If there ever was a time to shout WHOOO BUDDY, that was it! The area I planned to check out on this ride required snowmobiles to get to so my Moto-Bike just wasn't gong to cut it. This area (along the Western Divide Hwy) has considerable snow left on North faces but just patches on S/E & S/W areas. Cold BTW, it was cold enough to cause my high tech LEO LED Lithium flashlight to not work until putting it under the UQ.

    Of course a bigger Incubator is needed. you dont want to take the risk of a sudden drop in temps!

    I like the way you think plus my Judy really deserves some HG UQ downy goodness to compliment her downy goodness HG TQ.

    Thanks...even if a bit out of focus. I did a search of the Trail of 100 Giants and found a video It shows the Redwood grove just South of camp up and then gives a taste of the road I arrived on (reverse order though). Enjoy!

    Glad you stayed warm in your "almost right" sized Incubator. I sure was toasty in mine last weekend at 30 degrees. My river buddy thought I was nuts for not bringing my tent, but he was the one who had to get up in the middle of the night to put on more clothes. Being wrapped in downey goodness was awesome.
    I agree that Mrs. Law Dawg needs that "almost right" Incubator for herself. After all, she's needs a matching set with her Burrow.

    If I had the Toxaway tarp to lower more on the wind side the cold would not have even been noticed (really was very cozy anyway). Cold, meaning not really cold enough to do anything extra about it. Cotton sox and long sleeve t-shirt with light poly thermal bottoms and a Merino wool watch cap was the attire. The regular Incubator will probably take me to at least 20 degrees with a tarp wind block. Well below the temps I expect to camp in. Prolly will just keep the regular unless Judy claims it too...then come on custom, just because!
