So where would you get water from, lol! Do you bring it or are there small ponds of water in the dessert?

Why does needing to pee at night seems to make you cold? by sac02 in Ultralight

[–]twins_are_not_freaks 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm in my fourth year of undergraduate in biology, mainly in health sciences and we learned in our exercise physiology class that our core body temperature drops naturally when we sleep, possibly making you feel colder when you wake up in the night. Not sure about the full bladder scenario, but I've heard of it as well. I almost think it doesn't make you colder cause it's part of your body internally so it's already warm... Might have to do some research!

Best camera that can fit in my hip belt pouch? by theripped in CampingGear

[–]twins_are_not_freaks 14 points15 points  (0 children)

One if the favourites for /r/ultralight is the Sony Rx100 series. Alot of people rave over that camera for it's lightness and sharp inage quality for a compact camera. Also the Canon G7x series that is also decent camera as well, but specs aren't quite up to par with it. The Sony cameras range from $500ish - 1200 so they're a bit price y

Just thought about sharing this peaceful morning by longhorndog1 in CampingandHiking

I mean, sure! But I think the purpose of camping itself is to move a shelter away from your "home base" since you can't move you house (obviously) and experience a new setting away from your home base. I think that's one of the intriguing concepts of camping that so many people enjoy around the world.

After all, when humans were dispersing throughout the world thousands and thousands of years ago, we rarely stayed in one spot. So our living quarters changed very frequently, so (in my opinion) we're kinda connecting to our inner human of what we just naturally do.

What items/games do you bring to stay entertained? by Crampstamper in Ultralight

Does you book not get bent or folded when it's in your pack? I always have a full pack and I would think I could damage a sketchbook with all the stuff in it!

Played rugby for 8 years. Can confirm. But even just tampon without Vaseline works just as well.

Setting your tent up in all those jagged rocks, does it not rip the bottom if you move around in the your tent?

Only thing I could think of is get a smaller bag or stuff puffier (but lighter) items at the top of your bag to make more snug fit.
