Headed out for a 3hr MTB bikepacking trip on Saturday night and set up camp on the “Yalmy” Road. Al had this fantastic idea of purchasing a super light weight sleeping mat that involves blowing up balloons and inserted them in to the mat.
Stargazing was amazing, such a clear night we saw a few shooting stars. Totally mesmerizing.
The temperature dropped considerable, enough to put my bivvy over my head. Bad idea, woke up a few times being suffocated by the bivvy. Decided I’d rather my face freeze off than have that suffocated feeling again. Finally got to sleep. At 3 in the morning Al woke me up to ask “How’s your mat?” My response “Reckon it’s OK considering I’M ASLEEP!! His 3 balloon mat was not, so we packed up and headed back home in the freezing cold. Something peaceful and calming about riding at that time of the day.
