      Just picked up mine at REI today. It's self-inflating on the couch
      right now (Hopefully!).

      I will be at Dingmans Ferry, PA tomorrow (Thursday) - Forecast: rain
      and low of 28F. - Fri. low 28F - Sat. 36F -- So, I will have a report
      to post come Monday. Should have some pics too!

      Someone please remind me WHY I got the 70 inch long version! My
      error! Unrolled it and it's LONG! Listed at 27 oz. plus another 4-5
      oz. for the bag. Oh, well, not packing it this weekend....

      Stay tuned 'cause I may be offering this for sale and upgrade
      (down-size...?) to the short version...<g>... (More Below)

      I will be using Mr. Speer's SPE. Saw him insert the Exped DAM in the
      sleeve at Hot Springs (snug fit) and do not expect too much trouble.

      Well, I'm looking at 28F... Will let you know Monday.

      Happy Trails,
