Friday brought some nice temperatures – into the 40s. It was a tad windy and overnight temperatures were about 30.
Tim and Timothy both used bivy sacks instead of tents. No, thank you, I’ll stick with my tent.
We each heated our food over the fire, or various stoves – fueled by alcohol or Esbit tablets. Timothy made an awesome chili. I had a can of soup. There was also bread and sausage. We had some adult beverages. I drank more than the others, but stayed up later.
I expected to be cold and have a lousy night of sleep. In reality, I had a great night of sleep. I was warm, slept for nine hours, and only got up once for nature’s call.
The morning was cold. Packing up was brutal. The camp coffee was less than good. We rolled out and had a nice warm breakfast at Twig and Leaf.
It was a great way to get away from holiday madness and spend time with friends. I hadn’t seen Patrick in months.
