So, what's up with the record highs this year? Making me want to get out there a.s.a.p. Would like to get in some cool nights, before the heat sets in. I just checked the weather for Hot Springs, NC, and over the next 10 days only three make it into the fortys. 49, 47, and 45 are the three coldest on forecast, with the other seven being in the low 50's.
So the question is, who thinks there's gonna be another cold snap or two and if so, how cold? I'm talking southern VA AT. I'm planning a 40 day trip and trying to decide between 15 or 30 deg. bag. There's a considerable weight difference between the bags, so I'd like to go with the 30. It's 1-1/4 pounds lighter, and I'm thinkin' I could take it to 25 comfortably, 15 liveable.
I know some of ya'll are probably gettin' tired of all the questions. Take comfort, I'll be on the trail soon.
