Emily Sharp commented on The Old Man And The Sea (Of Trees)

I agree with you that those big-arse campers are not camping - they are simply parking somewhere. It is very sad that that is what people now consider 'camping'. I do remember that in MT and ID you had to remember that they a big arse vehicle like that would be likely towing something behind the main trailer and so you had to not move back to the lane too quickly.

The sleeping bag people noted your concerns about comfort vs survival ratings. The bag I bought in 2017 shows a temp range from t-comfort to t-limit. It's a 15F bag and says comfort is down to 28F, transition is 27 to 16F and limit is 15F with "risk" below 15F. I'm a cold sleeper and a 15F bag on its own keeps me warm to about 37F - if I add various layers, I'm comfy to about 30F. I am too wimpy these days to camp when the low forecast is below about 25F (and we don't generally get anything below that here anyway).

And I love the pic of the reflective bike tyres by the tent. I ride Continental tyres too, after a very disappointing experience with the supposedly great Schwalbe Marathons, and your pic is why I lay my bike down when I'm wild camping :-) Don't really want to advertise my presence and that is like saying LOOK RIGHT HERE!!!!

Hope you, the Feeshko and Diggity had a safe trip home and the pasties in Butte (?) were fantastic on the way.

I agree with Andrea.

Looks like a match for dwarf buckwheat with a little fleabane/aster nested in there.

She'll have to pry that jersey off of my cold, dead torso.

Sorry you were so cold, but glad you came through - this time. Please let the Feeshko know to get in touch with me so she can mail the Cariboo Coffee jersey my way if you succumb next time though. I’ll wear it proudly in your honor.

I'm guessing the white leaves are from a buckwheat (Eriogonum) but it looks like a little aster snuck in there too.
