Great trip report. Thanks. My favorite part of this forum is reading trip reports and seeing the pictures. We don't get enough trip reports on here. Thanks again!

Espar worked great. Kept the van at 55 every night and sleeping with just a blanket and not messing with sleeping bags was just what i wanted.

The metering pump definitely has an audible click that I will work to reduce, but overall very happy with it.
