Hey Im glad you mentioned this, not because ill change anything but because I was looking at the bag and I dont know where I got the 40* from. Its actually a 25*. This proves I made that list off the top of my head

I doubt this will be warm enough at 8000 feet but again I live in Indiana. Its like 1200 feet at the highest point, even if I do make a long trip like the TAT I doubt ill get a whole new bag just for the trip. It would be easy enough to not camp at such a high elevation, plus if I had a heavier bag it would be too much considering I normally dont camp much outside of the summer spring and fall.
