    The footprint needs to be smaller than the protection from above so it doesn't draw falling rain under the tent. Extending under the vestibule is totally fine.

    No question - individual people are certainly a concern. I just found stephanD's comment bizarre and off base.

    In hindsight I agree with you, nsherry. Especially in the light of some other things that came up about the family's posts yesterday. Definitely a concerning family situation.

    I agree with that for a night or two, but if you're out for several days it's a different story. The sweat can affect the insulating ability of the quilt/bag. Two sweaty nights followed by a third...

    Has anybody contacted Outdoor Trails with the info? They'd be an obvious stop for her if she needs any gear.

    Couldn't you inflate the bag by mouth to test? To be clear - I haven't tried this and don't have a bag handy at my desk to give it a shot at the moment. Just thinking aloud.

    Funny story - I didn't know until just now that it -really- was real. I was just making a lousy joke about Scotty revealing it to us in 1986 so it was (sort of) already invented.

    Today I learned that the crotch pot was a real product. All these years I thought it was nothing but an April Fool's joke on their website!

    Since it's a supported attempt, I don't see where it matters. Just a continuous clock from first step to the finish.

    Okay...

    That the innermost layer is occasionally referred to as 'down fiber', etc doesn't make it remotely the same as 'down' in the context of any conversation that you'd have about insulation. ...
