If you have gone camping, packed light and find your feet get cold at night in your sleeping bag, get in your bag, zipper up your sweeatshirt and pull the opening up over the bottom of your sleeping bag. Keeping your feet warm warms the rest of you as well.

  keeping feet warm
  Posted by: wavetamer on Dec-16-09 10:12 AM (EST)
Indeed,using clothing to add a layer at night works...I like to place the clothing inside the bag to the same effect for warmth but being inside the bag means that it draws the moisture from the garment making it drier in the morning...and already warm to wear. Thanks for the comments. Safe Camping!

One advantage of sliding the open end of a zippered, or zipperless, sweatshirt up over the outside end of the sleeping bag is that it still gives your feet some wiggle room and provides an extra layer. If packing light, it might mean I've sacrificed using my sweatshirt as a pillow, but it works nice in the middle of the night when the temp. drops unexpectedly, cold feet won't let me sleep, and I am wearing most everything else.

Liked the idea of the Y-stick - simple ideas that make it nicer to be outside. Thanks!
