I've been doing a great deal of packing through the SF Bay Area Coastal Region lately: Skyline (Big Basin), Coastal (Marin Headlands), Point Reyes (everywhere!), and anywhere else in between. My pack is light and my supplies are to the bear minimum. I'm using a Integral Designs SilPoncho for rain/shelter, the FireFly Stove from Mo-Go Gear and a Snow Peak spork, and all the other typical goodies (Komperdell C3 Airshock poles, Gossamer Gear Whisperlight pack, Integral Designs Primaliner for my Sleeping Bag, etc). I feel safe, comfortable, warm, and for the first day at least, dry and happy. So here's my problem: every single morning of day two, I wake up COMPLETELY drenched! Not in sweat or from a heavy rainstorm, but from the FOG! That's fine. I actually love the fog and welcome it. But I need to know from my fellow uberlighters how to dry-out my gear enough to feel comfortable on night two and day three. Sure, the fog MAY leave by around 9AM, but I'm an early riser and I need to get out of camp by 6AM to get my morning rush.
ANY ADVICE ON DRYING/WET WEATHER TECHNIQUES???
All the Best,
