Actually you know....that really is quite a feat...lol... I get scared when I stop on offf camber ground with my 530....lol...and once rolled down an embankment cause I slipped on the downhill side.... I did have a witness, but fortunately no cameras were present.... and bumbles bounce!

Props to your wife and if things don't work out with my SO I'll be looking for an intro to any available sisters of hers...

Going lightweight...

Has anyone tried shaving some bulk by ditching the full length sleeping bag and using a down jacket with a half down bag? I think that's my next refinement.

...does anyone have a down sleeping bag that is damaged that I could cut up? I'd pay for it!

Take the easy way - ditch the bag completely, put on 2 pr thermal underwear + 2 of outer pants n sweaters! Much cheaper n faster. DI is your friend!

And I can see uyou have already been to Colorado! You are good!!!

I have a Goretex half bag we used to use for wall bivys I could lend you, it's fine in the summer, might be a bit cold for some now.
Let me know.
