Here's a newbie question for y'all: how do you pack your layering clothing so it is quickly accessible? I've seen many posts about doning or removing layers quickly when you stop/start from a rest, but not how this is done in practice. Unless it's raingear, I pack all my clothes inside the trash compactor bag (with sleeping bag, pad and pillow), which is underneath everything else (tent, cookset, food, etc.), to insure they stay dry. Is taking all that stuff out pretty much how you do it?
If your sleeping bag (or something else) needs dried out for some reason, I assume you just take a long break if the sun's out and empty out your whole pack?
I'm working on trying some winter camping (back yard first to see what my bag/pad/clothes will allow).
