Tried out my new tent last night at Camp Doris in the Wichita Mountains Widlife Refuge. It was so cold I thought I’d never get warm. However, my REI AirRail 1.5 Self-Inflating Pad did just what it said as well as insulating me from the cold ground. I had a cozy snooze after the guy in the campsite next to me finally stopped jabbering.
When I woke up this morning guess what? Motor mouth was up and already telling his buddies more tall tales, so after breakfast and watching a bunch of Cedar Waxwings eat my apple core I packed up and headed for the coffee shop over at Beaver Lake. It’s BYOC but the views and peace are fabulous.
I took a rustic table near the lake and set to brewing java in my new Jetboil below. It makes great coffee and you can take the container off and convert it into a small stove. Cool!
Now it’s 61 degrees out and I’ve changed into a tank top and I’m sunning like a lizard on the plateau near Mt Scott, I call it the Internet Cafe because its just about the only place you get good cell reception up here. There are also bison or cattle near to watch while I write and sunbathe. Gotta love it!
