- OR Intersteller Bivy, EE 20 deg quilt, Thermarest Xtherm, Rumpl, Rab Dagwalkinjacket
The ride there was ok, cold and the Dyno light didn't provide enough to navigate properly. I left the green jacket and bike stuff on for a little bit to cool down and hopefully dry them out, then changed to warmer gear. I wore my grid fleece pants, and they weren't warm enough. Some warmer pants or more layers would have been good, but I wasn't uncomfortable.
Had 3ish scoops of Huel for dinner, Chili Mac! Would do 4 next time.
I read for a bit wrapped in the blanket, then went to bed around 10:00. Maybe 9:50.. Surprised I made it that far. Kindle was pretty slow when it was that slow!
Slept in the bivy, with the Rumpl wrapped underneath and a heat packet. I was warm enough until about 5:30 when I woke up first. In general, the quilt setup doesn't work great beyond maybe 5 degrees C. for being rated to -6, I guess it isn't too far off.
Overall, pretty solid night for being as cold as it was. Managed to get packed up and out of there by 7:45, mainly because I had to find my headband (which was in my pocket the whole time).
