    Finally had a chance to try out my new tent set up. Chilly nights got down in the 20°s but it was t-shirt weather in the tent. Very impressed with how much heat it was able to retain.

    This trip pretty much ruined me though. There wasn’t any of the dreaded waking up and getting dressed as fast as you could and crouching down next to the fire trying to wake up and stay warm.

    Headed back up to the north Ga mountains again this weekend. This time I dragged the family along. Another great trip and some frosty temps down into the 20°s again.

    I had to make an improvement to my spark arrestor to help keep pin holes from getting burned into the tent. Worked like a charm.
