I really shy away from saying warm when wet…if your sleeping bag gets soaked your miserable either way

How would feathers be ethically harvested?

It would be great to have Miranda travel to some parks around the country and go camping then make a report on tips when someone is going there. We buy gear when we have a plan to use it.
