    Quote from LIhikers: “Has anyone warned TJ about the morning problem you get from being in a warm, comfortable sleeping bag when it's freeeeeeezing outside? I have a hard time making myself climb out into the cold to get the day started--- brrrrrrrrrr ” One year 'Mr. Coffee' came the MLK weekend. The smell of fresh roast made it a bit easier to get our of the bag.

    Quote from odd man out: “Quote from SandyofPA: “I have the Western Mountaineering Antelope, as a side sleeper the width allows me to pull my knees up to stay real warm. I pair it with an X-Therm. ” Following as I may also be in the market for a cold weather bag someday. I also like to sleep a fetal position. That's what I like about my quilt I use for warm weather conditions. But a lot of people don't recommend quilts for cold weather sleeping. ” I use quilts for winter hammocking, and that work…

    You also asked about the width of a bag and I will say for myself, I always appreciate some extra girth. I want enough so that I can still roll around inside and get comfortable, even though it means I will have to heat that extra space. Keep in mind that when winter camping you might be wearing some clothing and a puffy jacket to bed also, and will be glad to have that extra space. I need it anyway.

    I do not have much spare change for transportation, so my car 'philosophy' is to buy low mileage unloved 'old man' cars and drive them into the ground. Right now I have a 2004 Cadi DeVille that I bought with only 60K miles on it for $2,400. I should be able to get another 100 K miles on it before the repair cost per mile starts getting too steep, then I will find another 'old man' car. This is how I can afford to keep my wife in her newer model Subarus, and the kids older heaps in repair. My dau…

    Quote from Astro: “Happy for IMScotty on the Red Sox winning another World Series! Growing up a Dodgers fan the reason I moved to Houston in 1988 was to be in a NL town (so I could watch the Dodgers 9 times a year in person and at least another 9 on TV) with an NBA team. But after my sons growing up with the Killer B teams (Biggio, Bagwell, Berkman) I evolved into an Astros fan. With Manny Machado I had a hard time even trying to pull for the Dodgers this time (of course last year was a no brain…

    Quote from max.patch: “the prez sez... Donald J. Trump‏Verified account [/b]@realDonaldTrump Watching the Dodgers/Red Sox final innings. It is amazing how a manager takes out a pitcher who is loose & dominating through almost 7 innings, Rich Hill of Dodgers, and brings in nervous reliever(s) who get shellacked. 4 run lead gone. Managers do it all the time, big mistake! ” Rich Hill is a Boston boy, I've been following him for years. I was happy to see him pitch so well, and was even happier when …

    Quote from Astro: “Happy for IMScotty and the Red Sox fans, but shame on the front office for not having Curt Schilling with 2004 World Series heroes to throw the first pitch. Bloody red sock and clutch performances should out weigh any political opinions of front office personnel. It should be for the fans, and he played a key role as anyone in ending the curse of the Bambino. usatoday.com/story/sports/mlb/…ebration-snub/1764017002/ ” It was incredibly petty of management.

    Quote from LIhikers: “Looks like Kathy and I won't be making MLK 2019 That's because we recently booked a 5 day dogsled camping trip, in northern MN, for that weekend. We'll miss our friends here but we'll be enjoying the cold just like you. The first time we did this the temperatures went down to 25 below zero. ” We will miss you, but dogsledding sounds like fun too. Maybe Tara can still come out to play

    Quote from Trillium: “I injured my foot pretty badly on 9/15; was on crutches for 2 weeks then slowly recuperating. Today I went for a hike with my meetup group, MAC. They were hiking 10-12 miles on the Waterloo-Pinckney and Equestrienne trails. I hiked with them for 1.65 miles then turned around and hiked 1.65 miles back to the parking lot for a 3.3 mile total. That was long enough for today. It felt so wonderful to be back out in the woods on a trail hiking again!! ” That is a start Trillium. …

It was 36 degrees when I left the house but I was spot on with how I dressed. The only part of me that was cold were my ear lobes. During the ride home I had a verbal altercation with a young car driver who was sure I should be riding on the side walk. The exchange involved a lot of him sounding his car horn, yel…
