I made it safely back to Denver today and landed feet first into a heat wave. Leaving the mountains where 70s were the high and coming down to Denver where it was 100° has been difficult to take, but the opportunity for good food and a comfortable bed made the transition a little easier.
Since I closed up the trailer when I left, it was to say the very least, extremely hot inside when I returned. Arctic Fox is well known for their insulation, which is a good thing until you want to change the inside from hot to cold or vice versa, then all that insulation holds the heat and it takes a long time to cool it off, so my first night back was not the most comfortable night I've spent in the Arctic Fox.
I learned a lot on this first real minivacation but I haven't had time yet for thoughts and ideas to coalesce in my mind because I've been so busy catching up with all the stuff that went on with my sales on GunBroker while I was cut off from the rest of the world. I had emails to answer, a gun to ship out this morning, and another one tomorrow. But when everything gets back to normal again I'll be able to talk more about the the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat while living in a tent in the great outdoors.
The National forest campground on Taylor Lake I stayed at for one night. it was eight dollars a night with my geezer pass
