Hello to everyone

I bike race from Mount Hermon to Eilat in mid-April with carrying equipment and camping ground.

Probably skip the tarptant torque I have and go bivvy (sadly to save pound)

A few questions on the subject.

1. what you recommend bivvy

2. will it be possible to crash with miles?

3. now, what is the NAP and to Israel in mid-April?

Thank you and good weekend

Eli

In April there is comparatively a lot of rain. I wouldn't take bivy and not shoes. Just weight. Not too cold.

I'd take approximately poncho tarp used during emergencies (improvising shelter with a bike), and later to the bouncy mattress.

If you're worried about bugs, etc.-you can buy a (200 grams). Just make sure you sleep around you could draw it from above or take a simple pole (if you want an easy option-Carboniferous)

I also think he's a better bivi Unlike the preceding era I think small rectangular Tharp and simply do a better job:
1. you can use the shadow at noon if khamsin (more common than rain in mid-April)
2. already have a cyclist trophy, drizzle, and ride with this poncho sucks.
3. consider not much too cold so I make could be over k-kill.
4. ideal for mid-April-not too hot and mattress.

This link: http://www.israelweather.co.il/page3.asp?topic_id=76&topic2_id=73&page_id=61

You can see average temperature for April and may. Also in the peaks of the high temperature never drops below 5 degrees in most places at night around 15. Need something longer but not really cold.


I'm also curious about the details of the race-Please expand.

Thanks for the answers.

When you say that means all Tharp manifold to protect from rain? (Even just nylon?)

I have a floor the tyvek of torque.

I have make Quilt of EQ, is taking or synthetic shcsh. Should I add Leiner?

The race called the HLC and leap in 10.8 from Eilat and shams (1300 km)

This is the self supported competition, not a arrange (in terms of payment, insurance, liability, etc) and need to sleep at least 50% of the nights.

You can buy things and sleeping places are sorted but not to buy things or get help from someone not in the race.

I agree with everyone else-at small (manifold) is a solution that can adapt.
About space in General, some crucial time for you personally? Time to get better at the wonders as but it doesn't work as a levy.

If not then maybe you stumbled this thread already have useful
Http://www.backpackingli.../forums/forum_thread_id? thread_display.html = 54639

Allow all but if you don't really canvas shrinks and budget it is important to you, I recommend you not to waste your time and buy a sheet material called silnylon

At little option: http://www.golite.com/Poncho-Tarp-P885.aspx
Remember to add strings and maybe weight pegs (I think you can do without stones sticks pegs etc ... at the expense of weight saving while building).
Multi purchase sheets need to seal the seams with silicon. Google tarp high temperature sealing seam.

Poncho at Ditto is quite dense with sand drive d to combine its use with levy. Although in April I don't foresee a problem but at a little bigger to make the story much more rested if indeed rain, at the cost of about 100 g
Http://shop.bivysack.com...tId=102&categoryId=6
(Tarphim manufacturer's recommended).

If money is no big deal, we can think of at of the so-called cuban material zpacks fiber-material more easier than silaniilon but also more expensive.
Http://www.zpacks.com/shelter/tarps.shtml
But perhaps we should anyway start silaniilon that cuban should be a little smoother and maybe decide that Tharp doesn't suit you then it's a shame to invest.

If you look at levy offerings of RAB
Http://rab.uk.com/products/equipment/
Note that the record no longer immune, although if you want to take a chance in my opinion a good chance last April Israel, especially when they are new and EXTENSION .DWR.
In that there is no defense for sleeping with your head under a rock, or tangle the bivi so that your head is covered or rain coat on top.
With levy could be condensation in the bag and in this case it is important to dry the bag in the sun sink breaks.

You could probably save weight if you take that a specific k April but a waste of money if you already have something that weighs more than 650 grams.
What exactly do you have quilt

Thanks for the detailed answer!

Loved all the Improv with the bicycle in the first link (-:

I think going on Tharp. To connect one side (upside down) and the other to the ground. The word on everything and tyvek bottom and have at least 500 grams.

The quilt I have is relevationX 20 weighs 700 grams. I think I'm going to stay with him after he skipped the bivvy.
