Awesome :P
Gimli: It's true you don't see many Dwarf-women. And in fact, they are so alike in voice and appearance, that they are often mistaken for Dwarf-men.
Aragorn: It's the beards.

My reaction exactly. Somehow very appropriate to Tolkien's style I think.

Well done on the video! Looking forward to the next!

Does the cattail mat do much to break ground contact? Or does the chill still seep through?
It's surprisingly effective (and lightweight!). The leaves have fluffy 'plant insulation' stuff inside them and the outer covering is waterproof, and I usually sleep with a layer of blanket between me and the mat, so I tend to lose more heat to the air above me than the ground beneath me.
This mat is starting to show its age (almost 8 years old) but it's still got a few treks left in it!

Also meant to say that I'm glad to see someone else carries a pair of "camp shoes". It's a good idea to get out of your hiking shoes after a long day. Looking at making a pair of pampooties myself soon. Need to find some hair-on rawhide first though.

Heh, you're not wrong...I learned last year that having something to change into after trail time is realll nice. However, mine aren't 'spares'...just that I normally do most of my trekking barefoot, and keep these in my pack just in case!
