Heating Air
I slept warm all night in the 30's a couple weeks back. I woke up a little early to use the bathroom. I wasn't able to get the bag warmed up again.

Great job on reducing your weight! It looks like you may have included the weight of some consumables though (it's 4am so I'm too tired to do the math lol). In fact, going through some of t...
