C3 :: From Prototype to Production

No I haven’t hit any sort of production or even commercial level polish. But the title sure had some nice alliteration huh? 😉

Thirteen Falls 2012, a set on Flickr.

Had a pretty awesome over nighter up to Thirteen Falls in the Pemi wilderness last weekend.

Got to put some new gear to the test, most of it turned out awesome. A few under-performers though, like my new -20° sleeping bag, who’s draft collar was defective. First pull, the bungee-cord came right out of the draft collar :/ Also, just didn’t quite live up to the -20° rating.

It’s about 8 miles in, which we managed in roughly 5 hours.
