Super Rainy Tuesday

Quick jot down:

Yesterday was an experience in some pretty torrential rain weather. Only thing keeping the electronics and I out of the elements was the tiny Eureeka Solitaire tent. She held up fine, folks!

I've always enjoyed the sounds of rain or ridiculous thunder. It was all the more amazing to have it beating down against the outer nylon shell of a small tent. The is definite peace out in the heavily forested parts of PA.

It is a shame that such a beautiful landscaped state has to deal with the nat-gas industry. Several days ago, we noticed a sticker (Proud supported of Marcellus shale) on a convenience store door. I might have puked. IDK. I forget exactly. lol

Tonight marks day 10 of " living simply w/Electronic Bliss"

Tomorrow may be a good day to fly finally. Who knows. Today was supposed to be do-able as well. The forecast for the next 5 days post tomorrow shows lovely rain weather again.

Oh! Tonight is supposed to be another biter. Low of 26F. *shrugs* We made it through 21F.

Last evening we treated ourselves to a tasty Thai dinner. Nice little step up to camp eating. You know, bright lights and all?!

I'm actually looking forward to sleeping this evening. While we were out yesterday, I managed to pick up a different Zero degree bag that only weighs 3lbs 9oz!! A far cry from the 6lbs of the previous one I was using.

If I just backpack naked (IE dont pack clothing) I should manage to have all my gear under 15lbs.

Over and Out!

    2. Oh, you guys! Not sure it would be all that impressive of a photo this far north in winter. I'm afraid. That is definitely a Texas Base Camp moment. HAH

  2. So glad you are blogging these adventures. I thought of you as I read an article in "Mother Earth News" magazine recently. It was about small house kits and is published online at : http://www.motherearthnews.com/green-homes/kit-homes-zm0z12djzmat.aspx

    1. It is nice to change up the season. This way I'll save a bit of money over hotel life, have memories, and walk away with quality gear. :)
