Well, if you can't answer that, then what about this.....

From Coober Pedy, on the 12 th. May, and following Len Beadell's tracks, and finishing up at Alice Springs.... 16 days later.......... how COLD would it normally get for sleeping?

I only want to take one sleeping bag, along with my swag.

Hey Wolfie,

1. Depends how many knots are in it.
2. Throw in some thermal underwear if you have any. Packs small and you can shed layers depending on the conditions.

Cheers.

A good swag with a matress donna and sleeping bag will see you through.Maybe throw one of those blue tarps in if you get clod or wet wrap your swag in that for extra warmth.Failing that a bottle of that foul green ginger that you sth aussies seem to like !to each their own I guess!

Well Johnsie, I suppose if you are in your swag with a mattress, a Donna and a good sleeping bag, that would see you through. But I think you may have ment to spell DOONA. If you were cuddled up with Donna, there probably wouldn't be much sleep happenen', now would there? LOL.
(is that a lady named Donna, or a doona)

More Info required
You haven’t specified how much red wine you are taking.

How many people are using the one sleeping bag.

Bloody cold make sure it's a good sleeping bag, can get below zero so ground cover is essential, be prepared!!!!

A good time to be a wolf in sheeps clothing !!!!!!!

Hey Nudie,

You mean that Wolfie should just fire up 3 or 4 of those stoves he has? That should keep things nice and warm.

Wonder what he'll do for a chair.......

a piece of string is exactly the same length as the distance between 1 end and the other, no matter how many knots are in it :oP

Wolfie,

I got myself a Polar Fleece sleeping bag liner at Rays Outdoors for $19.95. One of the best things going! Use it as a lightweight sleeping bag when it is moderate or warm weather or use it inside the regular sleeping bag when it is brass monkey weather. Rolls away to almost nothing. Also good inside swag.

Cheers

Muddy
