    It's so true, yet you think it every night ... "if I just close my eyes I can go back to sleep and I won't have to get up." And every night it just gets worse until you're forced to get up and go.

    I think it's just wishful thinking ...

    Not only is my body insistent about getting up, but every night my brain gives me a new dream about water. It's NEVER the same dream, and before long, I just let out an "oh maaaaaan" roll out of bed, and head for the head...

    ESSENTIAL gear, fo me, includes two small flashlights - one to leave turned on inside the tent so I can find it and the other to find all those tent ropes strung between my tent and the Porta.
    I've got a better system. My tent has a mesh pocket right by where the head of my sleeping bag goes. I put the light in the pocket- always easy to find.
    Bikeless for now...but not forever!
