We spent last weekend camping in Tuxedo, NC.
It was cold.
I mean REAL COLD.
Not quite as cold as Yellowstone National Park in the middle of February cold...but pretty dang close!
As a matter of fact, we woke up to snow on Saturday.
I think I cried, but it could have been a snowflake on my eyelid.
I spent the weekend looking like this.
Ali spent the weekend looking like this.
That's little man zipped up in three layers of my coats! He stayed there pretty much all weekend.
We stayed around the campfire mostly, but for a brief couple of hours we rode dirt bikes and four wheelers out on the trails. My hands stayed frozen.
My feet...I'm just now getting the feeling back.
It was cold, we had no running water (unless you count the creek), nor electricity, but it was peaceful.
The stars were bright and the campfire was cozy, we enjoyed a big pot of homemade chili Saturday night and all went to bed with our bellies full.
I don't know that I'll go camping again until the Spring, but I'm thankful that we got the chance to sleep under the stars one more night during 2010.
