    I showed little man I could ski on one foot, so he insisted that he needed to try.

    Ski trip was a group of 15 people in total, a handful of them decided to snow show for the day. My buddy didn't think to sunscreen the back of his head just to go outside in the mountains for 2 hours in February, he's a dickhead, and this picture proves it lol

    I'm back at home now, I got in this weekend, the state of Colorado is under shelter in place orders ("stay at home" as they now refer to it so it doesn't sound as harsh) so the new 4Runner sale is dead in the water, all the factory incentives end today. So no new Limited, this likely means this one sticks around a few more years until the 6th gen hits lots and the 5th gens are being cleared out.

    We've been spending a lot of time riding dirt and having campfires lately.

    We have shelter in place as well, this dirt singletrack is more or less my front yard. It’s roughly a 40-45 second bike ride from my garage to the trailhead. We’re not traveling to get there. All of the playgrounds are are closed but parks and trails are open for exercise.

    Can't even do that as they have closed all the parks. Hopefully everyone just follows the rules and this mess gets cleared up in a month or two. Love the pics Agent, passes the time, thanks for posting them.

    Park with playgrounds are closed. The dog park and all the trails are still open under orders that people keep their distance from one an other. Unfortunately I’m about caught up on adventures but I have a review of some gear I’ve been working on that’ll be coming soon.

    So quick product review. I’ve been trying to find a new sleeping pad for a while, at 6’2” 235-240 lbs I’m a big guy and unfortunately, I'm a side sleeper. I love going on adventures and my overnight trips tend to be for hiking or mountain biking as the main activity, waking up with sore hips wasn’t cutting it. I tried a bunch of pads, I bought from REI, while I was away for work in an uncomfortable hotel bed I went to REI and bought a pad and slept on the floor of the hotel, then tried another and another and another. I borrowed pads from friends to try. All in all, I spent the night on roughly 10 pads. Exped Megamat is widely considered the gold standard and it was the most comfortable pad I was able to try. But it’s huge, it doesn’t pack well, and your choices are 2 individual pads or a single larger pad.

    Despite not even being able to find one to see in person, my research lead me to a NEMO Roamer and its the clear winner. It’s 4” thick self inflating. I’ve found letting it self inflate and giving it an extra 3 full breathes is pretty spot on for me. Comfort is on par with the Exped, it felt very similar but with a hint of air mattress like bounciness. That wasn't a surprise though, the Megamat has a lot more foam in it than the Roamer, hence its inability to pack up small. The Roamer has 5 attachment points on each side to tether multiple pads tight and securely together, they also work for folding the pad over on itself prior to rolling it for storage. It’s single biggest advantage is the storage size, it’s not much bigger than a pair of shoes. I’ve slept on it a few times so far and I’m really happy with it. They make it in 2 sizes, I went with "Long Wide" which oddly enough is the smaller of the 2, the other size is 5 inches wider and a few inches longer. Yesterday my second one came (I was waiting for the REI 20% member sale to order the seconds one. We tethered them up and laid them out and its better than what we expected. You can rollover from one pad to the other and you don't really feel it, you don't slide in the gap at all, you don't feel a hole, moving on one side doesn't transfer any movement to the other side, and there’s no bag of chips crunchy foil type of noises, it's awesome. This afternoon all 3 of us laid out on them in the living room with a blanket and we took a nap. It deflates so flat I’m thinking I can get away with both of them up inside the rooftop tent when it’s stowed.

    All in all, we love them! I can't speak for longevity or durability at this point but Nemo make great stuff (we use their sleeping bags as well) and we did pile all 3 of us one and it didn't blow out so that's a plus lol.
