well, yesterday and today is a mark on my history of preparedness.
i had court most of the morning. pretty much an intense day, including several days preparation. but, i was ready to get to the woods, so i tell my boy "son, saddle up the hammocks, we're heading out for a night".
i get ready for court, and in the brain-drain, i only half it with the camping prep. get court done then head to the ouachita mountains in western arkansas. get there at shady lake just before dark, hang the gear, then start looking to stay warm.
forgot the uq's. no bother though, as i had some sleeping bags in the car for other purposes so an easy rig.
nope - forgot them too.
determined to hang outside we layered up with all we had and promptly froze the family jewels for two generations. this morning we loaded up and promptly got the hell out of dodge.
my feet haven't yet returned to living temperature.
