Winter Blast at Ground Zero 2012 Feb 10-12

Recommended Posts

Looks like we're gearing up for the 2nd annual Winter Blast at Ground Zero in Northern Virginia.

 

I will not be sleeping in a $@#^^ tube tent this year. I'm going to try cooking Bulz again maybe some fry bread. Discussion has come up about trying the fire bed.

 

This is the same group and location that did the winter campout last February and again in the spring.

I finally started packing everything for my campout on Friday. After carefully organizing and making lists and re-reading last years notes. Well all this did not fit in my pack. Now is the time for me to panic.

 

Basic shelter Kelty Crestone, ground tarp, heavy duty stakes from Home Depot.

 

Mountain Smith mummy bag, fleece blanket, Sea to summit bag liner, Gortex bivvy shell.

Start? There isn't anymore room in the pack. That sleeping bag eats up a lot space.

 

I was thinking a good start with the sharp pointy things.  But only one hatchet?

Ah. One will do for this trip. There's a larger axe down there if we need it.

You would think that between Washington DC, Baltimore and Richmond that you would be able to find a decent radio station. But no. All I got was ----------snow storm, ---6 inches--- 2-4 inches---. Where? When? Kelty Crestone. This little tent held up well.

kelty makes some excellent gear. i still have a kelty quatro tent from around 93-94 thats seen alot of use. its still works great except the uv rays have finnally after 15 years degraded the rainfly to much to seam seal. (you can see light threw the stiches) if i could find a new fly for it ill bet id get another 15 out of it.

We rigged a tarp so we could sit out by the fire and not get snowed on. Around 10:00 Hank the coon hound tree a possum. We had a choice of shoot Hank or the possum. Hank lucked out.
