Re: neo + closed cell or insulated mat?
I just got a Neoair and a CCF pad from GG. In the Denali light article on BPL they mention they used a Neoair and a blue foam pad. If it's passable on Denali I figure it'll work for conditi...

When to say when?
I may have too much time on my hands. I also fear I have become a "gram weenie" about some things. When do you say enough is enough and stay within the realm of the reasonable? I just cut...
