    Cheeky wee overnighter

    this was our first overnighter of the year, the weather played nice with us, it was cold (about -1c in the eve) but clear. We saw billions of stars, watched an amazing moonrise, and went to sleep listening to the waves on the shore and a pair of owls somewhere near by. Also got a chance to try out my cobbled together FBC insulated bag, it's an outside layer of fleece, a middle layer of space blanket (the kind they give to marathon runners) and a inside layer of polycotton. Worked a treat it did
    Sorry about the sideways pictures

    nice!! If you have not seen it check out Irfanview. Nice little free program for working with pictures. It will let you crop, rotate, rename and resize fairly easily.

    I guess in Scotland hangers get Cold Cheeky Syndrome? Does it happen on both cheekies or just one at a time?

    Sweet location. Reminds me a bit of the coast of Maine. Where abouts in Scotland is it?

    thanks guys it was a good night
    Nothermark- that's good free software, thanks for the heads up, i'll have to hang my head though, I use photoshop CS5 I was just being lazy because I took those on my crappy phone camera

    flight_chick- cheers chick

    sargevining- only warm cheekies here with my JRB full length UQ, so I suppose you could say I had toasted buns
    It was Kirkcudbright (pronounced Kircoobree) on the west coast. I'd love to see Maine one day, love the New England vibe, and great seafood too.

    Someday I'd like to get out to Scotland as well.

    New England is where I was born, New Hampshire to be specific. Deep woods of NH, Vermont, and Maine are great in the summer, seafood is great, and a lot of extensive trail systems and crisp clean lakes and streams.

    But then I went to Texas and never went back to NE to stay. Wide open spaces with good hardwood stands, a variety of terrain that goes from desert canyons to deep piney woods to sun drenched seacoast---all within a 4-8 hour drive (if you live East of Uvalde), and temps so mild that if it ever does get very cold, you just stay home and wait till next weekend when it warms up. We've got good shrimp and redfish down here on the coast, but when you've got Barbeque and Tex Mex all over the place, missing out on clams and lobster don't seem that bad.

    Did most of my camping up in Maine in and around the AT. Not gonna lie, it's not much different than here. Think Scotland on Steroids- the mosquitos are as vicious as midges, and if anything there are more trees/higher hills. Either way, it's very much like home (which made the 1 hour 'homesickness' lecture I had to sit through to go look well and truly silly! )

    Looks like a lovely hang. I'm glad you liked it.

    We'll get you a double dose of fajitas, some carne asada, a few poblano peppers and then have a jalepeno eating contest. We'll even spot you a couple so's its fair. A couple bottles of Cornona and maybe some Shiner Bock and you'll be all set up. Finish the whole thing off with a big bowl of peach cobbler smothered in Bluebell vanilla ice cream, then we'll fill out your salsa card and send you back across the pond a happy laddie.
