Briton Cannon's Bio

One day I woke up face-down in a puddle of my own filth, took a good, long look at myself in the mirror and decided to 'carpe diem' or roughly translated into English; 'seize the carp.' I promptly got a job for an up-and-coming evangelical church distributing their 'Mormon Bible' down in South America. My journeys eventually led me to Brazil or as the scholars would call it, "The Land of the Mestizos." After a rough couple of seasons amongst the Guarani Indians, I bundled my belongings in a kerchief, fastened them to my crudely fashioned bamboo fishing pole and returned to my homeland to seek my fortune.
Back here in the U.S., I hit the road to quench my thirst for adventure. Don't let anybody fool you, like that song by the Hollies says, "The road is long, with many a winding turn that leads us to who knows where, who knows where?"* My time in Brazil taught me many skills that made me more marketable in the job field and to make a long story short, I held and dabbled in various vocations over the years ranging from the Ring-Toss Master to the Bearded-Lady. That's all ancient history, however. For the time being I'm a risk-management assessor for Ace Disposal; independently contracted, of course. There are some sweet perks, I mean; you wouldn't believe some of the tasty tidbits of perfectly good grub and only partially broken umbrellas that people throw into the Dumpsters in my sector. I only work this job in the off season though, until summer rolls around and Carnival season takes over. Then it's the good life again, going from town to town and the road that leads us to who knows where?

So my inaugural use of the sleeping bag in question, was on a two-day trek down the Virgin River Narrows in Zion National Park. The river was ANGRY that day I tells you. Mostly because the flow rate was so high because it had rained for many days prior. Mostly. To make a long story short, we arrived at our backcountry campsite much later than anticipated because of slow-going in the river crossings. I was cold, wet, and had some sort of rash from taking a dump in the bushes! Anyway, to crawl into the MontBell Ultra-Lite Super Spiral Hugger #1 Down Sleeping Bag (Long Edish) was like being back in mother's womb. I felt warm, encumbered, safe, and all with freedom to move about inside. It wasn't terribly cold that evening, but the bag regulated the warmth pockets so well that I didn't need to exit it for anything that night, save nature's call. I slept better in the backcountry that night than I have in years, and I accredit it all to the proper gear I brought. Buy this phenomenal sleeping bag my friends; you shan't be disappointed.
