    I'd hang on to your gear and be patient. Who knows, but in a few years maybe the Australian economy will improve and you'll be able to afford to make the trip.

    Somehow I think this was going to be my last shot, I've not heard much about people over 70YO climbing Denali in winter. This gear is way overkill for simple cold camping or hot tenting. I'll probably keep all that stuff current and up to scratch just in case but better somebody younger and fitter but a bit short of cash buy this gear. It will be discounted to half price but even so there is several thousand dollars tied up and the mortgage is important

    Sorry to hear about the trip Moondog, that's brutal. As a Canadian I definitely understand the rough dollar situation. Just out of curiosity, what kind of sleeping bag is it?

    If ever you do go... bring a barrel of DEET!

    It is a Berghaus Ulvetanna with another 300 grams of down added, rated to be the same as a Snowy Owl from FF; -55C
