Routes / Help needed choosing a place to start in New Mexico!
« on: April 24, 2010, 02:56:08 am »
Hi, I'm a bit overwhelmed with choices of where to start my ride off! I'm heading out on the GDMBR in late May. I would like to start off somewhere with good elevation, as I plan to take a week or so to let my body adjust to the altitude. I think it would be great to spend that first week relaxing in one of New Mexico's hot springs! (Clothing optional would be a plus! :-)Does anyone have any suggestions on a good combination of what I'm looking for that would be close to the trail? Any suggestions would be appreciated!

General Discussion / Sleeping Bag Ratings?
« on: March 24, 2010, 09:16:15 pm »
Hi, I'm gathering some of my gear for the great divide, and I can't make up my mind on what rating sleeping bag to get.

I have a decent tent, and already have a sleeping bag rated for 40F, but I was considering getting one a bit warmer. In the summer months, what type of temperatures would I face in the worst case scenario? I'll be starting in New Mexico in May, and ending in Montana some time later in August.

I don't want to over buy, as I consider myself quite warm blooded, and sweat easily at night. I want something comfortable to sleep in through the trip.

Any suggestions would be great!
