Pre Springer hike

A short hike just to get out and to test gear packed for Springer. I have
a new Xped Neo Air pad to sleep on. It has twice the insulation of my old
Neo and it has a tapered mummy like shape. I was a little worried that i
would not like the shape. I rotate all night sleeping on all sides back
and stomach. In winter i have been also carrying a Zrest pad to double my
insulation. Any way the Xped worked out well but if of course i was not on
snow and it was only around freezing temperature.. I could really feel the
reflected heat.
We went almost a half mile of trail to camp checking a couple of hill tips
for a good site.
