[cdt-l] real live gear questions: sleeping bags

Hi Sloetoe,
     On the AT and PCT my Western Mountaineering
Iroquois (about a 40=B0 bag) and my 5oz silk liner were
enough.  It just wouldn't cut it on the CDT.  On my
northbound hike last year.  I don't remember ever
regretting carrying my Feathered Friends Swallow 20=B0
bag with 2 oz of overfill.  It was definitely the
coldest summer that I have experienced.  Southern New
Mexico in May, and the divide basin in July weren't
too hot for it.
