Hey guys.. This is a question for some of the desert foxes out there. Leaving from Portland, Ore. in Mid may.. Heading out East. Will be going through some desert along the way in East Oregon, Idaho, and Wyoming. The nights in the desert are supposed to be very cold. I was wondering if any of you who have had an opportunity to camp out in those parts could share your experiences? How cold can it get at night? (End of may, beginning of June) Would you guys recommend an insulated sleeping mat, or will a regular pad with sleeping bag (Rated to 30F) be sufficient if I bring some sleeves and long johns for sleeping? Is there anything else to consider for the campouts?
Would really appreciate any input..
