Having said I’ve learned my lesson and don’t camp down in hollows anymore, here I am at the bottom of a hollow with Long Creek only about 100ft away. It’s a sweet spot though.
I was up early, but it’s dark until around 8 a.m. That’s the disadvantage of winter camping. The great advantages are that it’s not too hot, and there are no bugs, so no bug net required — though the moths were mobbing my camp light last night.
Despite spilling a load of fuel for my alcohol burner yesterday lunchtime I used the alcohol burner last night and this morning. I’d used my wood burning stove for my evening meal and breakfast on days one and two respectively, so I had plenty of fuel.Copyright © 2020 Gary Allman, all rights reserved.
