Joe's camp

Joe arrived and found Sean and I quietly sitting drinking a homebrew and starring at the wet ground. Within 10 minutes he has a log fire going using packets of chemical that they issue only to North Face insiders. This stuff was amazing...instant fire! We used a large circular metal fire pit and sat around, light provided by 5 kerosene lamps. Its a cool way to go and the light rain wasn't problem.

When the rain got a bit stronger we moved in Joe's VW bus and did our best to demolish a liter of Jameson's...pretty good effort I might say.

I'm going to sleep out in my bivy sack tonight and it will be interesting to see if it holds up.
