    That would be the logical step, but she can't be convinced that her 25-year-old sleeping bag might be at fault. I was sleeping quite snugly in mine. As I said, it's my fault. I should have seen it coming. Now it is the "tent of the devil straight out of frozen hell"

    Used the winter months for scouring eBay for a used Tarptent and found a cheap Tarptent Rainshadow 2. With 1.45 Kg it's crazy light considering it sleeps up to 3 persons. As it has no inner tent, it needs to be well ventilated. Meaning, if it's cold outside, it's cold inside. Now, my mistake was to test my new precious in early spring when it only had 10° C.
    My girlfriend nearly froze to death that night, even with 4 pairs of socks and her clothes on.
    Guess I have to look for another warmer tent for spring and autumn now...

    While the statistics are indeed horrifying, the study quoted in the article seems a bit silly to me. Comparing wars where soldiers rode into battle with sabres drawn and wars fought with satellite guided artillery is odd.

    Would completely cutting the main supply lines for food and meds etc not constitute a crime against humanity? I don´t know how long it would take to organize relief shipments from St. Petersburg and if it would even be possible to ship food for nearly 1 mill people on short notice to Kaliningrad. Certainly the weak (physically and/or financially) would suffer massively from such a move.

    Also have one of these cheapo decathlon folders, changed nearly every part. Don't be tempted to upgrade the brakes too much, mine is now prone to throw me over the bar
