The high country is not that far from my property. And when the wind comes from the West that becomes quickly apparent. It appears that the mountains are not quite ready for Summer tourist yet
Words cannot describe the misery of sleeping in this tent last night. just thinking about doing it again tonight sends chills all through my body, and I mean that literally because I almost froze last night.
It was so cold last night, in an effort to save heat I didn't open a vent in the tent so before morning I had water dripping on me off the tent walls and roof. Things were covered with frost when I got out of bed in the morning so I know the temps were way below freezing. My sleeping bag kept me warm on top but I forgot to bring the thick foam pad I lay on the cot so whatever part of me was touching the cot was freezing.
Last year I made a list of all the things I need to take with me to go tent camping but this year I cant find it. And since I never plan on tent camping again I have no desire to make another.
I stopped at my storage room on the way to my property to pick up all my camping gear and found that the snowplows that keep the storage area clear had piled up the snow in front of all the storage room doors so I had to move a couple feet of snow and ice to get into my storage room, which ordinarily wouldn't be a big deal except all I had to remove it with was a screwdriver. Oh the joys of dealing with ice and snow.
I hope when this Memorial Day holiday is over and I get back home all my Amazon stuff to tie the camper to the truck has arrived. I've ordered the truck tie down points, some turnbuckles, and a 7 plug wire to tie into the truck wiring to get DC power to the camper. I didn't buy any chain to tie the camper to the truck cause I don't know how much I'll need yet, but when I find out I'll just run down to Home Depot and get some cut to the correct length.
