Default Went camping

Well, I went out camping this weekend. It was a cold one though since it was about -15 at night and single digits during the day. At night we had like 50 mph winds so that was kind of different. It was like a 2 mile hike on up and then we setup from there. It was up in the White Mountains in NH so it was great scenery everywhere and the second day we hiked up to the summit. I loved it and can't wait to hit a trail again soon.

A bit cold for me. But the White Mountains are beautiful, especially this time of year. Where abouts were you? North side or along the Kangamangus (or however you spell it)?

I remember winter camping as a kid when we had to sleep with a jar in our sleeping bags or at least the tent. A few times it was about -25F and we were all in agreeance that nobody wanted to get up in the middle of the night and go out there and expose any skin - especially not THAT skin hehe.

Yeah we can let you know when we get together. There tends to be a drink or two consumed when me and Matt get together though. Not sure how if we only have one or two though, how all those pitchers seem to get empty around us hehe.

I'm not far from you. If you need any help drinking the beer, let me know.

I have a friend who once worked as a undertaker near Mt. Washington and every spring the park rangers would deliver bodies to be thawed out. He said the bodies were always in very good condition for veiwing and the poor souls were almost always from Massachusetts. That put an end to any idea of climbing Mt. Washington in the winter.

The greater question is how we make it to our respective destinations.

"I've got this 100 and I've got some coins. Which do you want?" :D

Ahh...I can't wait until we're able to do a TRUE piss-up...not when I have a bus to catch that night or am leaving town with a tour early the next AM.
