Thanks for the comments... In regards to the bivy, I too was wondering if I would be too warm inside this with my 32F bag... I have never actually used a bivy before and will be making my own out of tyvek in the next couple weeks. I made a tyvek ground sheet with a footbox a while back, but never tried that either. That might be all I need, but if it gets rainy and windy off of the lake, I would probably want full protection of my down bag.
I've been eyeing the tigoat long bivy (I'm 6'4") for awhile, but have not pulled the trigger yet. I also realize I could get by with a lighter bag and even convert to a quilt, but again have had the cash to do that yet.
Do you think I could get by with my tyvek bivy, a flannel sleeping bag liner the clothes I have listed and then leave the sleeping bag home?? I do have my montbell vest I could throw in too...
As far as the clothing, I have been meaning to get a light pair of running shorts and then use my generic wind pants or my driducks pants to go over top for bugs... I'll have to put that at the top of my list of things to do.
I do like to have my long sleeve icebreaker as I do get chilled pretty easily, especially if it's rainy... but the windshirt might be enough?
I do have an alcohol stove, but with a group of us going, I think it is more efficient to use the canister stove. I will also be throwing in my sp 900 and possibly a little 9 ox 5-cup coffee percolator as well for more capacity for the group. There will be 3-5 of us going overall.
