    I do that quite a bit, except that I never get a frozen butt. For me, it is a toasty tucchus.

    There will be a stove coming along, but mainly for drying clothes and absolute emergencies. We will be cold camping the whole time and I'm going to be using a new insulation system I can't talk about yet. But, I will be testing like crazy before hand.

    I just looked up historical data and the record windchill in the area I'll be is -71f by the new formula and -102F by the new formula. I am praying to the snow gods it does not get that cold. lol

    Be careful about putting out a challenge like that, us Montana hangers love our cold camping. In fact, might be interesting to set that record on the "Froze to Death Plateau" (below Granite Peak).

    I had a -30* night two winters ago, without a tarp so I could see the stars at night, so a record should be within reach.

    K so what are the ground rules? Car camping? Hike in? minimum distance for hike in? What about Types of gear allowed?

    Also, remember to tell us about your secret squirrel insulation afterwards.

    Wasn't there a secret modded pack from before that you forgot to talk about? I could be completely wrong too. If so, I apologize.

    Since Turk has the record, let's base it off of him.

    Multi-day trip

    Hike in.

    Atleast 3 miles in

    Cold camping all the way.


    Sound good?
