for I have sinned.
Several weeks ago I rode (triked) for three days on the Great Allegheny Passage trail (GAP) in PA. During an initial reconnoiter several of the campgrounds appeared to be devoid of suitable trees, and the COE campground in Confluence PA specifically bans anything attached to trees.
So I deferred to a solo MSR tent and Neo Air mattress for two nights.
And here is my sin: I rather enjoyed the tenting experience! Of course, I was dog-tired so that may have entered into the equation. And the weather was perfect for tenting, so I suffered none of the disadvantages of ground-dwelling.
As a way of making amends I spent two nights in my Warbonnet over Memorial Day weekend. I feel a slow return to normalcy.
