look here...

Big Agnes sleeping bags solve the biggest problem in the camping universe: sliding off the sleeping pad. A sleeve on the underside of every bag accommodates a sleeping pad, and with a pad in the sleeve, everything stays in place, you don't twist up your sleeping bag when you turn over and you never slide off your pad. For these reasons, Full Throttle Camping carries Big Agnes sleeping bags exclusively.

When shopping for a sleeping bag, please keep in mind that the temperature ratings tend to be more for survival than for comfort. For the lowest comfort rating, add 10 to 15 degrees to the stated rating.


Goose Down Sleeping Bags
The king of insulations; great heat capture; lightweight; small packing. Developed by God to keep geese warm in some of the coldest environments on earth, goose down is simply the best sleeping bag insulation there is. Lighter and more compactable than any synthetic insulation, down is the choice of mountaineers, backpackers, pilots and riders who need to pack small and light. All sleeping bags require a sleeping pad.

This is because this is knda half a sleeping bag.There is no padding in the bottom side, so you have to slide a sleeping pad into the bottom sleve. this saves weight (sorta cause now you need a pad and bag, not just a bag). they say bottom padding is kinda useless cause, when you lay on it it looses most of its loft, and thats what keeps you warm.

Coolers







I use this collapsible cooler. Smash it flat till I get there then get eddie to buy the beer to fill it when we get there.. You bring the beer and I'll bring the cooler.

Dave, if your cheap like me I use this.
It's a top box, cooler, seat, stool, etc.
At some camps I leave it on the bike
and fill it so I don't have to bend over.


Only on long trips.

Little of everything...



New Brunswick, Canada 2009
I upgraded to a MSR Dragon Fly stove and mess kit since this trip. Saves some space. Start with a good quality tent, a sleeping mat & sleeping bag & pillow along with warm underwear if you camp outside of the summer heat. All of the other stuff you can do with or do without except maybe a flashlight. I use a 2 man Ureak Timberline, nice to have extra space for your gear at night rather than it getting damp or wet.

I started out using a cheap old pup tent. We went for a ride one evening and had a heavy rain storm. When we got back I had about 3 inches of water in my tent. Sat around the camp fire drying things out as best I could... Went to Cabela's before the next trip and bought I good tent.
