Cold night…

Apparently I have lost my camping skills, I’ve neglected backpacking and concentrated on triathlons for too long.I arrived last night around 8:30 and set up camp in the campground, just below Smithville lake damn. Being that is was the first time setting up my new “car camping” tent and I was doing it in the dark, it took me about 30 minutes to get it set up.

I had thought it would be more comfortable and I would sleep better if I brought my down comforter rather than one of my mummy sleeping bags. Unfortunately it got rather cold last night and the comforter wasn’t exactly comfortable… So, this morning found me at Target purchasing a $10 electric heater and a fleece air mattress cover. Hopefully tonight will be a little bit warmer. It will definitley be an earlier morning, I have a 5 am appointment with breakfast!
