Re. Sigg bottle/s
Being metal if it was below 0c inside tent, trying to be polite, would not "bits" stick to the top of bottle?
Would you also not want to empty contents, of any bottle, in case needed again?
I do, left of door, even if carrying 2, so know where "bad" side of door to get out.
Sig's are a waste of bandwidth...
I always get up and go outside even in winter.
easier to stay warm if you get up and go pee than try to hold it till morning
I also find down bags keep you warmer if you just sleep in a merino base layer and a warm hat, not a million layers of clothes like Ive known people to do when the mercury drops
Yep,the body wastes heat trying to keep a quantity of water heated inside the body.
Changing the subject!!! Caught out on the Cluanie Ridge at night, pitch black plus mist ( stupid stupid!!! ) Headlamp dimming, no prob' got spare batteries - but need illumination to replace spare batteries. My 1p (old money?) Nokia brick has a torch, Sorted. My tip would be, apart from not having senior moments, have a secondary form of illumination available.
I bought a led light about twice the size of a malteser for £2 at a street market, I've used it for 10mins already, the battery is £1.50, it is also a keyring. You can walk with it and see the ground in the dark .
Especially on long wilderness trips well worth having a second plastic spork/spoon,if you misplace your one spoon you go hungry, unless you make a little paddle out of the woods.
To go back a couple to Pres and AR (My apologies SD, no offence intended), I was given a wind-up torch a few years ago. I certainly find it reassuring to know that (providing I'm a situation where I can still physically wind the thing) I'll always have a light source. Consequently, I bought myself a wind-up torch with a head-light adaptor / extension (thingy). Extra weight in the pack, sue, but may be worth it in winter conditions.
I have a wind up one for the house pete, the old one kept using batteries , I didn't realise you could get a headlamp adaptor bit for some of them.I must have walked about half a mile on a verge at 6am the other week, suprising light off something so small.
SD, I must admit I take an extra spoon when I go off with a tent, a bit of a job having cereal with no spoon !.
S.D. I'd rather just use my fingers!!
