Sleeping Bags

Students participating in the Baračeva excavations (see attached site schedule) will be staying in a speleological hut.  Although the hut has beds, it does not come with bedding.  We will be purchasing new sleeping bags for each student to use at Baračeva. If you would prefer to bring your own sleeping bag, please let me know as soon as possible. 


I'll be out of touch Wednesday through Thursday, but will be checking my email again on Friday, if you have any questions.


Videmo se u Hrvatskoj!  See you in Croatia!
