Oh, and I'm glad you're alive and well
Yea, possibly. At the time, I felt that it was soak through, as it seemed VERY wet.
Thanks for the tip Shug. I for one,,, how to put it,,, Only way to put it: I didn't feel like it. KNEW it was the smart thing to do, KNEW I could do it easily, KNEW I SHOULD do that,,,, couldn't bring myself to even reach for the cook set. I wish I had, & at least now will TRY to do so in the future. I somehow suspect that burning down the shelter was a distinct possibility.
It has now been a bit over 1 week since we got back to the relative safety of the group area. (by a bit over 1.5 hrs) & I am still not right.
When I seriously knew that I was in trouble was setting up Tarp & Hammock. Normally, IF I take time for a sip of tea when setting up, I can rig for winter in about 30 minutes, Thursday it took at least 2 hours! And I hurried as fast as I could. Makes me wonder if trying to start a fire in my stove,,,,,,, Well, even now I am typing one letter at a time & making sure I did it right, been touch typing for 40 years. If I posted what I type without correction, it's unreadable.
