last night I had my annual sleepout…

I miss camping and this is a fun way to get the feeling… also a great opportunity to see the stars;-)…

it is a process and I left it a bit late to get organized… it was dark by the time I brought up the air mattress from the basement… I always put down a comforter underneath to be sure that no slivers puncture the mattress…

I couldn’t find the cap that goes on once it was filled with air… searched upstairs where it had last been set up but could not find the cap… came downstairs thinking there wasn’t going to be a sleepout… started to take out the pump, only to discover the cap was on a string which was inside where the pump was, lol… clearly I should have done the set up in the light…

then it was on to bringing up comforters and bringing down pillows…

had a great sleep, although the mattress went down a bit, likely because it cooled off a bit… not a single mosquito, woo hoo…

a lovely view to wake up to… took everything down, put things away, had a hot tub and then the sky clouded over…

great timing… looks like it will be overcast and rainy most of the day…
