7.5 Pounds

Okay, so we're NOT going to try to summit Mt. Whitney this year; we are just going to use our pass to scope things out for next year. Good thing, as dealing with the kids (finals/grades) kept me too busy to decide on which sleeping bag I wanted. A check of nighttime temps on the mountain let me know that the bag I was fairly settled on getting would not be sufficient for the overnight temps...esp. if we go sans tent.

So I just picked up a mummy bag that is rated for 15 deg. It was the last bag available; and of course, IT'S PURPLE. Just it in my backpack is a total of 7.5 pounds on my back.

This should be an interesting adventure...
