Testing new sleeping bag in the VauDe bivi
As the weather improves, I am getting ready for the road. My long distance bicycle trips have usually been in the summer, so this will be the first time that I set off in February. Last night I tested the new sleeping bag with my VauDe bivi. Also tried out the ThermaRest Z-Lite, which was comfortable enough on the hard balcony floor, so it should be OK on the road. Slept right through till 8.30am on a dry night with a steady breeze. First though, a beer break to whet the appetite: The lighting in the bivi video below was provided by a budget Petzl headlamp in need of some new batteries, so it's a bit of a dark movie. If all goes to plan, I should be heading for France in about ten days time.
