"roger is always right,it's his way or no way,I really found that out!But that was another thread,disregard Mike C. he doesn't know anything."
Roger sounds downright logical on this particular subject, especially compared to what you are saying. You and, I guess, Mike C, are the only folks I have ever heard of who pack their shelter in the bottom of their pack. What could possibly be the advantage, especially in rainy weather? I live in the rainy PNW, too, by the way.
