Yeah, that's what happened. It was really cold that night. In the middle of the night I heard a scream "Guys! It is f'ing freezing out here, I'm f'ing freezing. Ersin, let me in"
It wasn't like I was in a house with a locked door. I said OK but he was already in the tent setting up his sleeping bag.
Once Joel was in the tent it took him 30 minuted to get comfy and fall a sleep. And then I had a Dolby THX sound of snoring. Rich on one side, Joel on the other...


hahaha and thanks. now get used to it ersin....that won't be the last one....


back in camp



thanks to all who gathered firewood



as darkness falls, all stood closer to the fire

Here I have capilene top and bottoms, pants, and a down seater. RRuugger is in his shorts.

I washed out a riding shirt that afternoon and hung it out to dry, hoping it would be by the next day. When I got up at 4:30 it was frozen.

Now I know why everyone else set up their tents all the way into the woods, at least 100 yards away from Joel. ;)
I had my 20 deg dawn sleeping bag but it wasn't enough to keep me warm at Lake Navajo with rainfly on and at Indian Hallow without rainfly. I was absolutely freezing my ass off at Indian Hallow. It's time for a zero deg bag.

TBarstow snores too. 10' away at Lee's Ferry was too close.

Odd, I guess the comfort ratings for sleeping bags don't apply to everyone. I have a 30deg rated down bag and wear polypropeline longjohns and long sleeve shirt - never cold. A knit cap helps a lot. My sleeping pad has foam in it, self inflating. I wonder if that extra insulation helps as well.

It doesn't bother me and keeps the scorpions away. :)

Ersin - now you know why I use the emergency bag instead of a tent, it keeps the old FF from joining you in the middle of the night.

I'll get rid of my 3 person tent and get a -20 deg sleeping bag and some XL trash bags for rain. Maybe I'll be safe then...

If that poor camp host didn't clean it up at 6:00am, I'm sure Joel will take one or many pictures of that as well.

Ahhhhh, good times. I thought the funniest thing was Rich yelling from his tent to the ranger at 6am to "quiet the fuck down!".

Sorry for the delay on posts and whatnot gents, but so far, great job by all. I'm actually riding a lot lately (go figure ) but you'll have an epic video from me.... by winter.

+1 Apparently the degree rating keeps you alive to that temp. The 20* bag wasn't enough for me that night, but I was also unaware of the fact that you should NOT wear every single article of clothing you have in order for the sleeping bag to effectively radiate heat from your body.

"WHO THE FUCK CLANKS FUCKING BUCKETS AT SIX IN THE FUCKING MORNING?!!! FUCK!!!!" I was already awake and well aware of the carnage left in the restroom since I had visited myself before the ranger was able to clean up. DAMN. No pics though. You wouldn't want any anyway.
