Nice report. I am becoming a bigger fan of the overnight trips since they require so much less planning, so I like reading about others doing the same. One thing I noted was that you mentioned having to sew a couple of more tie down points in your top quilt. If you are talking about getting it tucked into your sides and around your shoulders, my Mid Atlantic Mountain Works top quilt has shot cord running in channels up the sides when pulled tighter, tuck the quilt in. Since that was one of the concerns I had with top quilts, thought I would mention it. Full disclosure it is my son that makes the quilts, but I think it is a good solution to the problem if that is what you are referring to. TomOct 21, 2015 at 4:15 pm #2233255Adam KlagsBPL Member

Eric, its interesting that you point out the cold mornings/quick heat up. I always have the same issue. My friends tend to joke about my "wardrobe change" each morning just a short distance from camp or time after breakfast ;) It was nice to know some other people experience the same thing.Oct 23, 2015 at 12:26 pm #2233631AnonymousInactive
Yeah, it's amazing how fast you heat up. One moment you are cold and the next you feel like you are in a sauna.Oct 23, 2015 at 12:28 pm #2233632AnonymousInactive
Hmm. Thanks for the info. I'll look into those quilts and see if they give me any ideas!
