It wasn't that cold and there was plenty of cider left but I can't say the same for my good friend jack

Of all the vises to have this one is quite benign. I too have my own vises, wheeling being my most mild one compared to some (Lorie) and feverish when compared to others (Lorenzo). But if you were to ask my wife, I could use a few 12 step programs. It’s just not for wheeling or alcohol and much less drugs but they are vises none the less.

Like many of us, we just learn to live with them and others learn to live with us. So I would think that just makes us...normal?

It's the Disease!! I thought I could tough it out through Sunday. I gave it a gallant effort...and with no heat in my Jeep. Side and back windows off too. I just hate driving my Jeep closed up!!

Amen Sista! I believe it!

It was a bit ridiculous for the area. We do not have to deal with weather like that very often, so don't have the need for -20 degree gear.

It was 70 here today..comfortable

Bummed I missed out on Sunday, but I was still defrosting.

Not too bad in the winter and the summer doesn't really bother me like it bothers others. Tons of trails to get lost on. Best friends and awesome camp fires. It's all I need.

The question...

Lorie you missed out on Sunday, did you see the picture where Brandon was practicing the one important question with Brittney?

He must not know it's only one knee he should go down on when asking THE question. But that's OK Brandon, practice makes perfect.

Attachment 177848

Maybe next time Brittney...

I hear you. Isn't that why the Jeep has AC and a Heater? When I drove the armored personnel carrier in Germany in the winter I only had one rule. Never get out of the APC. It was heated. Lol. Looking forward to seeing you and Vanessa soon.

Great time with friends!

Here is a link to my collection of pictures. I want to thank Kendell for sharing this great time with us and his photos which I reposted in my album.

Vanessa and I had a great time with all of you, thanks for everything.

And you guys handled the 95 pretty well last time!
11-12-2012 11:50 AM
yomondo I don't mind 100°. I would prefer that over cold. Less clothes to pack, and the nights are awesome.

Oh they have problems. I talked to someone who did Mt. Everest type alpine trips. That stuff is crazy. Even with the best gear, he said it's so cold that you practically don't sleep at all for days because you're freezing. Frostbite is common, and even death is no stranger. He had talked to people on trails who later died on the trail.

He chooses not to do Everest because of all the rich morons who you end up dragging up the mountain because they haven't properly prepared, but have the time and money to do it, and just want to do it so they can say they did it.

I had hoped in the past to get into alpine type hikes, but couldn't get anyone I know interested to go with me. And now my knees are no longer allowing me to do too strenuous of hikes.
11-12-2012 10:26 AM
I H8RDS No biggie. We didn't figure the winds were going to be blowing that hard at camp. Ya, I know there's gear out there to keep you warm. Is why the people who climb Mount Everest etc have no problem. But I don't need gear like that because I don't plan on camping in weather like that. It's not what I like.

If the winds weren't as strong as they were at camp and I had heat in the Jeep, I would have been fine.

Wind is a different beast. It robs you of body heat quickly. Windproof gear from head to toe.

Sorry, I don't mean to belabor the point or sound argumentative. I just want people who are reading along and interested, to know that it's possible to be comfortable for days in the cold. I've trained lots of boy scouts (as young as 11 years old) how to survive in the cold. And in the hot desert as well.
