If you want the ultimate expedition air mattress, the Exped DownMat is what you have to get. Aaron used this mat on his Antarctic and Arctic expeditions. Regular air mattresses “suck” the heat out of your body at night. This air mattress has down inside of it to prevent heat loss. It’s rated to -34 deg. Below that, Aaron adds the Thermarest Z-Mat to eliminate cold conduction through the nylon at extreme temperatures. Aaron talks about the uses.

There are multiple versions of this air mattress:

When you are considering security cameras for your come, there are a huge number of choices. In fact, there are so many that people overload and give up. Consider the Blink cameras from Amazon. They work pretty well and are completely wireless. They’re controlled by an app from your smartphone, so you can check on your home from anywhere in the world. Note that they are a consumer system, so they’re not safety-critical, nor do they connect with an alarm company. Watch Aaron’s review to see if they might work for you.
