First overnight camping trip for me and it was awesome! : camping

Had a chance to go out camping and test the gear I bought some months ago. The trail was still under snow or flooded in most parts of the forest. Probably stayed on it like 15% of the way and bushwhacked the rest. Two hours of walking to the campsite with last light guiding us during the tent pitching, thankfully this thing was easy to set up even for a first timer. Made salmon soup for dinner under the stars, tasted pretty dang good with proper rye bread. Night got a little cold with my sleeping bag, temps falling below freezing (bag rated for +3C comfort).

Can’t wait to hit the trail again and hopefully do without the outer tent next time! I want to see the stars from bed.
