Hello, out there. This is your foolish friend who shortened her waiting days
by 7 weeks when she signed up for the WEMT course at NOC. When I get back
home (which, by the way, was -8 degrees night before last), I'll have ONE week
to pull it all back together before driving away to join the other ancient
ones with whom I am hiking the AT.
Someone stamped us oldies with the attribute "wisdom." Obviously, I'm not
there yet. (It's so great to be young and foolish.)
Anyhow, so now I need to get my gear in order. (Yes, my rear too.) I'll need
it at NOC too because they promise us "at least" one night out in January
I want a 0-degree Dry Loft bag. REI has one that is -5 degree rated and,
according to their printed material, weighs 3.7 pounds. Is this the best one
that I can find? I surely don't want to go out in January OR March with only
a 20-degree LiteLoft bag again.
If any of you can advise, you know that I will appreciate it.
