Cold, rough and freezing rain day. Quilt went into bivy under tarp bone dry and wetted out within hours. Finally got out of bivy when I realized what had happened around midnight and had a freezing night with a soaking wet puffy and quilt. Left for Winthrop to get new tent, shell and gloves. Got sick in Winthrop so stayed at hostel for a few days to recover.

      My quilt wetted out in two hours on first night of rain and my HMG tarp was too minimal for the weather in Washington, plus had a huge footprint, which isn’t optimal … so ditched tarp and bought tent, best move ever. :)
