    OK folks, post your 2017 Bag Nights here! Don't forget to post a pic!

    There are no official rules, but a bag night here is typically defined by a night out camping in some form. It doesn't matter if you sleep on a tarp, in a tent, or in the back of your car. It is more of an attitude thing. If you are outside to enjoy nature, if it's camping, it's a Bag Night.

    Now I will go wrap up the 2016 Bag Night challengers and announce the winners.

    Good morning from a chilly 12 degrees East Texas.
    Finally got the weather I've been waiting for to test my Western Mountaineering 20 degree Alpinlite Long bag in my backyard.
    2017 Total YTD: 2 nights.
    Jan. 5, 24 degrees.
    Jan. 6, 12 degrees.
    The Alpinlite is a winner.

    Chalk me up for one in 2017. I'm still tempted to start counting camping on New Year's Eve as a double night, but until then...

    2017 Total YTD: 1 Night
    Dec 30-Jan 2 > Bears Ears National Monument > 1 Night (in 2017)

    I didn't take any photos on the night of the 1st outside St. George, but this is where I woke up on the first day of the year in Comb Wash in our new Bears Ears National Monument. I'm loving that REI Alcove Shelter as a shelter over the bed of the truck for when it's rainy/snowy out. Yeah, I could setup a tent, but there's something about the back of the truck and being able to look around that I like.

    Yup! @Chris Mosbacker and I kept moving from sunup to sundown, but the long winter evenings gave us plenty of time to rest and relax.
