Camping was good. The first night it didn't even freeze. The second night there was just barely some frost on my DR seat.

Not nearly as cold as you might imagine. Did'nt even get below freezing. It's very quiet out there this time of year.

Bummer I missed it.

Bob, I don't suppose you were running your GPS?

I might have to head out there after my bike is up.

Sorry no GPS, but I can show you on a map if you want.

Wow. Cool to see it with water. Don't know why I wasn't thinking about it having water in it as i was racing my van across it.

Thanks for posting 'em.
