    1) The travel plan (secondary insurance)

    Oh, also another big reason why I took the above route - the plan you get through the public exchanges almost doesn't matter. You just need some form of primary insurance, and then you can rely on...

    My glasses only fogged up in cold weather when I had my mouth covered with my buff. If you allow ventilation in front of your face, in my experience (YMMV), you should be fine. If it was so cold that...

    This is what I was attempting to get at. In fact, I've seen online some people complaining of just that - that sleeping on top of the duplex can lead to holes. Although I will say I was surprised at...

    The only reason why I made the comment about reconsidering the Duplex is that if I'm aiming to cowboy camp all the time, I image I'll want some sort of tyvek groundsheet to lay my pad on. And I could...

    Oh, also, for what it's worth - I see you're in Anaheim. I'm in the LA area as well now. I took the Duplex to Joshua Tree, Grand Canyon, and in the San Gabriels. I have the Mojave in mind for a next...

    Helpful list. Thank you. This last part in particular is motivating... So the ~9 nights of the PCT you set up a tarp because of rain? I thru'd the AT with a sil-nylon tent. Recently bought a Duplex...

    Overmountain was beautiful, and it was fun to camp in the upstairs portion of the barn. But it was crowded as hell, and from my one night's experience, crowded with some rude and entitled campers.
