Nights 193 and 194

Hi and welcome back!

Last night my dad slept out under the stars with me (which surprised me because he's so soft). Overnight I was hot in just my sleeping bag liner but at about 4:00 this morning I was freezing because of the breeze and dew so I took the 40 degree bag from my dad.  He ended up with nothing, but was sleeping soundly anyway.

I am amazed by how much the temperature can change over 6 months. This week we are being hit with a heat wave which will have some temperatures close to 100 degrees.  That is about a 100 degree difference from the coldest temperature I faced in the tent this winter.  I am not sure how I am going to stay cool but I better think of something quickly.

Thanks for reading!


  1. Do you take any steps to keep mosquitoes or other insects off when you bivouac?

      While bivouacking I don't take any steps to keep mosquitoes or any other insects because they hardly ever annoy me.
