love the bike and esp the pictorial record- great to see so history with a bike- must have been cold camping in Isreal- did it a few times when I was in the negev '94.
Yes, cold in the night but I had a good down bag. But even still there was one night that I couldn't keep my feet warm. Didn't sleep much that night. Some of this desert, the Negev, is 900 meters and some of it is only 50 meters elevation. The low desert is much warmer throughout the whole season. You should go back there now. The Israelis have gotten the riding bug-white line fever! Good for them.
