    Bah, who needs it? Just call RCC and get a free helicopter ride, courtesy of the U.S. taxpayers.

    About a week ago I put a -35* (16.5 Pound) sleeping bag in my truck. Then a few days later I put another -35* (16.5 Pound) sleeping bag in the truck, I figured I just might NOT want to share one bag with a passenger. Then today I put another much older bag with 6 pounds of fill in the truck also.

    Maybe you should be more selective about your passengers.

    Maybe he can't find a passenger that would share with him.

    I have my inflatable doll to keep me company. And if she hogs the blankets, I just deflate her.

    Everything in your survival kit should have more than one use...

    Always carry a "ditch bag" when I fly into the back country.....always. I wear it around my neck.
