I would like to apply to test the Bibler Winter Bivy. I have
never used one, but have camped with someone who had one made by a
different manufacturer. The more I read this list, the more items I
'need', it seems. The Bivy would be very useful, especially here in
Northern New England, where the weather is so unpredictable. We are
just coming out of a drought. It has been raining (sometimes
torrentially) every other day or so. The night time temperatures are
still down in the mid-40s. Farmer's Almanac predicts a wet spring and
early summer. Night temperatures in the mid-40s-mid-50s. Due to our
location in the foothills of the White Mountains, we are usually
cooler at night, than would be expected, even when daytime temps reach
the high 80s. I will be camping in Northern Vermont and Northern
Maine during the summer, which should ensure plenty of rainy/cool
Most of my camping experience involves camping/hiking with my
family, starting when I was about 6 years old. I know spend most of
my outdoor time with my husband, 3 children and their scout groups.
Up until now, most of our trips have consisted of setting up camp, and
hiking from there. We are now doing more hike ins, carrying
everything we need with us. This has made it neccessary to lighten
our load. We are out at least one weekend a month during the winter,
and more during the other three seasons. I plan on doing some
overnight cross country ski trips this winter.
The Bivy seems like a great piece of foul weather gear! It would
probably work well with my Hennessy Asym. Hammock. I can imagine
that it would increase the usefulness of the hammock, allowing for a
wider range of times it would be usable.
I have read the Survival Guide on May 27, 2002 and agree to follow
it and submit reports as they are due.
