- Jan 3, 2007Making camp, packing, unpacking, cooking. Those I'll agree with.
Gathering water? I just had to wring out my socks and there was enough
water for a family of 4 to cook dinner.
I was glad to have a 10 x 12 tarp in that rain. Lots of room to pack,
unpack, etc. I was sorry to have a light grey 10 x 12 tarp that blended
in with the mist and rain so well that I lost it every time I wandered
more than 20 feet away and had to keep circling around trying to pick
it out of the fog. My apologies to the many I probably woke stumbling
