After Kedumba, i had a rethink on sleeping in warm clothes vs sleeping bag. I bought a Kathmandu pathfinder sleeping bag. It kicks arse big time, heaps better than sleeping in clothes. It come's in at 687gms & packs up real small. I have spent the best part of 2 weeks in it {Wollembi NP}, & give it 2 thumbs up.

Nice one peter. Good to know you rate it.

Got to say im very envious of your simplistic way of camping and its something I would like to work on.

Do you use a groundsheet or just try and locate a dry patch of ground?

Hi Blake i just put a survival blanket on the ground put the sleeping bag on it, & get in it and go to sleep looking at the stars. It is Eproof so you just shake the dew off in the morning. Cheers Peter

Things are good with me mate.

Much respect on your walk mate! That area has some incredible scenery, canyons and technical and challenging navigation anywhere. Bowens Creek, the Wollangambe, the Colo Gorge. I have not done much around there but I no Crawfords very well having been in and out of there many times over the years.

What route did you take? any chance of a trip report?
