That photo is old, but I was using a Sierra Designs 20 degree Polarguard 3D mummy. Sleeping pad was an original Thermarest full length. I heated a water bottle of water and tossed that in for initial warmth.

In my Jefferson trip, I spent 2 nights without a sleeping bag, but instead wore all of the clothing I brought including a down jacket, thermals, and beanie. The extra unplanned night on the glacier was colder than I'd have liked, and boots make a poor pillow.

I'd like to do some motorcycle camping again someday. Would love to have an FJR1300, or perhaps something off road capable, but I'll probably stick to my F4i. It's surprisingly comfortable.

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary. -H.L Mencken.
