Unexpected/unplanned overnighters.

After reading Pete's post on what the Four Peaks taught him, I wondered if there are other HAZ'ers who may have experienced similar situations anywhere in their life. With New Years just around the corner, maybe, it is time to pause and reflect how fun hiking is. But remind ourselves how dangerous i...

Re: What the Four Peaks taught me

Let me be the first to say, "EXCELLENT"! Just read Joe's pleasant, burtal, honest log entry of yesterdays adventure, naturally I am nursing a hot cup of coffee as I type this; and I want to say although I do not know you all, the effort was made and job well done!

In response to mritchey's reply: Welcome aboard mritchey. I would suggest popping open the Hike Indexes above and then backpacking. Good start to look in.

I use a tent now. Its cozy, snug, and a creature comfort that I have grown accustom to at my age. In my younger days I slept outdoors quite a bit, every once in a while just laying on the ground with what I had on just to catnap for a couple of hours at night.

:lol: Thank woopitup. And I will keep you in mind for next years disclosures. However, can you shed some light on which one is the real woopitup in the pic? I have been puzzling over it, placing bets, trying to figure out who is who.
