      Welcome! I am glad the first time was great. Your set-up sounds just
      fine and you obviously learned a little before you made your first
      overnight. BTW, the Walmart pad is probably a closed cell pad. The cut
      edge looks like it is open cell, but unless it soaks up water, it is
      closed cell.

      Can't wait to hear about your next experiments and hikes.
