The Great Outdoors

I hope to go camping this Summer, so picked up a few things from REI today:

I put up the tent at the local park, and it’s pretty amazing. Very lightweight, yet fairly large and sturdy. The sleeping bag is a good, tight fit, and felt very warm for the two minutes I tried it. The bag also easily compresses down to fit in the bag space in the pack.

The pack, tent, and bag should be under 20 pounds, but I’ll check everything on a scale to be sure. I want to be able to ride my bike with everything I need for a night in the wild.
