“Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.”

-Henry David Thoreau, Walden
Is it Warmer to Sleep Naked in a Sleeping Bag?

I have always heard that the best way to stay warm in a sleeping bag is to zip up with no clothes on. I've been told by both military and civilian that sleeping naked in a sleeping bag is warmer than wearing long underwear inside of the bag. I once overheard a surplus store employee give advice on sleeping without clothing to a customer. My findings through experience? That "sleep naked" advice is dead wrong.

Five Quart Collapsible Canteen is a Multipurpose Piece of Survival Gear

Recently we picked up several Viet Nam era 5qt collapsible canteens from military surplus and we've been thrilled with them. Not only do they hold five quarts (1.25 gallons) but they also hold air and can be used as a pillow and as an emergency flotation device. Versatile gear is invaluable! I am going to need to figure out a way to be able to use my Sawyer water filter with these collapsible canteens and I don't think that is going to be difficult a task.
