Been backpacking over 35 years but I'm looking for some advice on a real basic issue
Not sure if I brought this up before but last summer on my last leg of the NPT I took a new Big Agnes Scout. Never used it before but I was doing 16 miles that day and I needed to pare weight.
I'm doing the CL 50 this spring...(anyone wanna come along)..and I'd like to bring that w/me but I had a serious condensation issue with it that night...drenched inside and out...and I did not even sleep in it.
It was pitched in the open, clear night, flap open. Ended up sleeping in the lean-to. Didn't think it was all that humid but anything left outside of the lean-to was drenched. I'm leery of hauling a single wall tent after that, but I have to believe no tent would have escaped unscathed.
A friend had his Half Dome tent under canopy, no issues. So I suppose that is the answer but I figured I'd ask here.
So....What happened? And how can I avoid it?
I sometimes put a wool hat or mitt over my nose, across my face, but not to cover my nostrils, just to keep my nose warm. You have to pay the piper somewhere for this kind of fun
