Field Notes
“When the foot end of your sleeping bag rubs up against a condensation-ridden tent wall, the result is wet, cold feet, something I couldn’t afford on an already cold, wet staff trip along the Olympic Coast in 1997. That’s when I learned this technique: To protect my sack, I either wrap the foot end of my bag in my rainshell, or I stick it inside my pack or a spare garbage bag.” —Thom Hogan, Executive Editor, 1997-2000
