[pct-l] Re: Gear Tradeoff -- Tents versus Sleeping Bags

I agree with big Hummel.  mainly because walking down any trail is not a
very good test fro the down vs. synthetic fillers for a sleeping bag.  You'
all need to do a weeks worth of climbing and bushwacking in really bad
weather in the Olympics or the Picket range of Washington to test out some
of that equipment.  The PCT is by and large dry!!!!!!!!!  I have spent two
nights in a synthetic bag after wringing the water out of it.  can't do
that with down.
