I've also had my chain separate a few timesWow, how is that happening? You're not putting pins back in, are you?
Would that article have been written by Jan Heine, aka the lead advocate for 650B?Yes.
John/Brooks, how many miles did you average per day? Sounds like the terrain in flatter than other parts of the USA according to ACA. We are shooting for about 70/dayMinnesota is very flat and you can get in a lot of miles a day. It gets hillier again when you get into Wisconsin, but the flat again along Lake Michigan. Once you turn inland from Lake Michigan, you're into rolling hills.
I'm looking at either the ultralamina 32 or 45. I was worried the 32 would be too warm.One compromise, and the option I recommend, is to take the lighter bag and also a liner. Most silk liners are very light and small, and claim to add 10 degrees (a potentially disputable claim, but I do find that they make the bag much warmer).
I'm trying to pick a sleeping bag rating. What's the coldest night I should expect if leaving July 1st?I'd plan for nights as cold as 32 degrees F. There might only be two or three of those nights the whole way across the country, so you could do with a lighter bag if you wear all your clothes to bed on those nights.
