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.

The Motorola MS350 radio is likely the best regular family radio system (FRS) on the market. Aaron has used this radio in the desert and on Denali to communicate with his teams and listen to weather updates. The rechargeable battery and ability to swap for AA batteries is a huge lifesaver. Also, the radio is quite water resistant – it can handle dunking. Other less expensive splash-proof versions like the MR350 or MT350 are less expensive options.
They have a theoretical 35 mile range.
