  1. Eric does your daughter have a sleeping bag and pad. She could borrow mine rated to 20 degrees, women's design for about 5'5 and under. Can't help with other backpacking gear - haven't done that since I was in my 20s! I did sign up for the contest above. Good luck and have fun!

    1. Thanks, Aisha. She is all set. Sh'es been planning for a while and buying stuff a little at a time.
