101_2141Picture_0105 Again ya gotta roll with this.The right tool for the terrain.If you end up with the unexpected storm and to press on would be unsafe…you only have that “what if space bag”….then thats it, you go with it. improve and mix with natural shelter bits thats your beddy-by and you have to roll with it.

wool blanket,woobie and a moldy poncho…Heaven….roll with it and make it work. 

basha , down bag and MH 3/4 mat….luxury! sez I.

a hooped Grtx bivi…down bag and homemade uber-NINJA sleep pad….Uh HUH…ROCKSTAR!

everyone has there Favorite system but there may come a time when the hamock’s not in yer kit bag or you are in a  area w/no trees and all of retrofit  bungie gadgets to rig yer basha, end  up  holding  yer blown out homemade pack together…roll with it.We all… well most of us know how to sleep.and we know what are comfort level is as far as heat,cold,wet,and should know how to maintain that with your “planned” sleep sytem or the “unplanned” Oh crap! we go to ground here, and this is what I have to work with…..roll with it.

(old notes)

“froze hard last night…had tons of debris under beside and on top of me with the old tent fly over the mound and me….I’m sure glad I ate the last of my beans”

find yer zone….get the kit….stick with it but stay flexable

I’ll try to control myself here,and not make this into a dup of my favorites list. I’ll try to keep it fresh and not just the “have you seen that video dude”…..unless its just that great,I’ll try like I said to control myself and keep it worth your time…..I’ll try.
