Winter Camp: January 2015

I just got back from winter camp, and it was cold.  On the bright side nobody died.

Here we are ready to leave

We had quite an adventure just getting to the campsite.  The tarp blew off the trailer, and I spent the entire trip worried about the trailer I was pulling.  The trailer is so wide that I couldn’t see past it with my mirrors.

I need to get my much smaller trailer set up so that I can pull it instead.

Dinner went well.  I fixed milk can dinner.  It was delicious.

It then started to snow.  I didn’t get many pictures, but I did get this one picture of where I slept.

Here's where I slept. Well, at least until I gave my sleeping gear away.

Later that night the wind started to blow.  One of the tents blew away (it was later recovered), as did a sleeping mat (not recovered).  Most of the tents blew over flat.  My tarps actually did ok, but I wasn’t in them.  One of the boys got really cold and I was attending to him.

The next day most of the boys went sledding.

The drive back was also nerve wracking.  We were so tired when cleaning up camp that we just threw everything in the back of the trailer.  We tried using the tarp, but it was just broken.  Fortunately nothing flew out.
