So where are you going in the park? The campsites going to the peak are semi-protected by short retaining walls on the tent pads. In the bowl, you'll be in trees once you get to the campsites. ...

Perfect Evan, as much as I hate the reality of it. But I will be using it, so I hope you didn't copyright it or anything.

I would just explain the options, and let them figure it out. If they don't like carrying a heavier tent, they'll adapt.

I don't think 8 oz should be a dealbreaker on a thru-hike. And I can see the camping experience being much, much better if the GF is happy.

Bury, and cover with rocks. Deer won't move that.

You're in my prayers, Christopher. I know several people who have had good experiences with MD Anderson Hospital in Houston.

Marmot Atom Mens Regular 40 Degree
Nice bag. 1/2 zipper is kind of a pain, and makes it hard to use as a quilt. Seems true to rating.

Replaced my Exos 58 with this, much more comfortable, with more weight. Got a deal on a 2008 model, and added the dual stays. A lot bigger pack than I'll use most of the time. Gained some weight o...

ULA Circuit
Switched to this for more durability, and the ability to carry more water in the desert. Works like a champ, and you couldn't ask for better customer service.

I have to ding it a little for the hip belt. I think the hip belts on the large runs small, because it didn't wrap around me enough to be effective. And that may not be fair to ding it, because al...

Golite Ultra 20
Mine kept me warm in the upper 20s, so I'm happy. I'm not completely sure it would reach 20, and keep you warm for 8 hours. But it's a great product for a great price.
