Pseudo Camping Trip

I’m finally taking a few days off. I’m happy that our big project is past the first big hurdle and we are now into phase 2.

With that being said, I believe it is time to test some new camping gear. One of the latest additions is the Lynx ALPS 4 tent. It is a rather large tent weighing in at 10 pounds. I like the smaller Bivy style tent I have but sometimes you just need more room.

I’m going to spend most of the morning trying to figure out what gear I’ll need and then — pack it up. I’m taking the Trekking King 60L Survival Rucksack.

I’m looking forward to some winding down.

Robocall Relief Possible

Great article over at Engadget about congress trying to pass stricter laws against Robocallers.

I get about a dozen of these per day. I wish Apple would just allow us to block any number that is not in our contact list.

Yes. I like using “asides” to post. I think bigger posts should be handled differently. Asides are great for quick posts. Love. Them.

A Night Out

Last night I decided to try out both my mid-range sleeping bag and the Winterial bivy style tent.

I was amazingly warm and actually very comfortable last night. The temperature was 58 F when I went to sleep and got down to low 40s when I woke up.

The air cushion also helped to make the overnight enjoyable.

Thumbs way up — can’t wait for camping season.
