Well, you have to make sure it works!

A friend visited last year, on his way back from hiking the Inca Trail, which leads from somewhere near Cusco to, where else? Machu Picchu!
The four-day hike is rated Top Ten! on most lists, and passes through spectacular scenery.
We have tentatively planned to hike the Trail after leaving the Mission in July of next year, figuring we may be ready to leave South America for a little bit after almost five years.  
Some of the camping is at about a thousand feet higher than where we live in Huancayo, and Paula is deathly allergic to cold.
Naturally, you need to make sure everything is up to snuff for such a trip.  
She brought back a new down bag and pad when she went up for Mike's wedding.  It has stopped raining quite so much, so we picked a quiet night and headed for adventure!  (On the third floor terrace of course.)
 It all worked great, and she was as lovely in the AM as ever.
We hope your gear all checks out and that your tent-mate is as charming.
Dave & Paula

Now that the bag has checked out as being effective, I hope you do it! So much fun!
