Like I said, last weekend was pretty sweet. I still have not been on an over-night backpacking trip, but I will still jump at the chance to go camping. Still, I consider camping to be kinda too luxurious for sleeping outside. I think I’d be fine with a sleeping bag and some form of fire-starter. And maybe a hammock. But I would definitely want to try that in the summer (like it is at home), because it was a good thing I was able to rent a sleeping bag. I didn’t know outdoor stores (oxymoron?) delivered their products (yes, like a pizza). Is it really true that the best way to stay warm in a sleeping bag is to sleep with as few clothes as possible? I had three pairs of (cotton) socks, and my frozen feet were the only thing that woke me up.
I guess I like to talk about camping. The video should explain a lot. It was cool. The weekend’s events went something like: ice skating thursday night (winter festival downtown), driving/camping Friday, hiking/mountain climbing Saturday (and did the ferris wheel and checked out the casino for a little bit that night after I got back too), and the Australia Zoo on Sunday. Everything lived up to expectations. Feeding kangaroos was awesome, but they still scare me.
