camping at big creek
i wanted to camp at least once more before winter came and last night some friends and i made it happen. it was a very relaxing time. we camped along a local creek. can’t go wrong roasting brats over the fire and chatting until 2:45 AM! we were up again by 9 AM, making a fire to heat the water for coffee. i forgot a toothbrush and headlamp, but managed to remember coffee grinds and my french press. priorities. six people, four dogs, a campfire, beautiful night sky and the sound of the creek: lekker. i was reminded of one of my favorite aspects of camping: waking up in a tent and crawling out (with some legit bed-head) to make a crackling fire for morning coffee. life is good.
maybe the weather will stay nice for a bit and we’ll get in a few more nights under the stars. i hope so.
