LOL, It is a lot of stuff but at my age a bed roll doesn’t get it.
No kidding! I slept on the ground (air mattress) in a tent one time eons ago. The air mattress had a slow leak, that was an exciting night. First and last time for sleeping on the ground.

I just sleep on an old zero degree bag, it's comfy as long as I sleep on my back. If I try to sleep on my side its a painful night LOL. Most of the time I don't even bother with the tent anymore, in AZ the weather is clement as long as you love the heat, which I do :)

It’s been another year and it now has 16,000 miles. Still no mechanical issues. I made a lot of 1,000 mile round trips towing it to the Sierra’s but only one out of state to Colorado. I wanted to get the Blackbear Pass off my bucket list so I made a special trip. I did Blackbear and Imogene loop. Silver ton /Telluride / Sliverton.

We've done Blackbear a few times, once going up (the higher elevation part of the trail is always one way down) with our former Montrose wheeling club - it was a special occasion. The San Juan's are beautiful country.

Thanks for the photos!
