Returned from the frozen tundra

Things I figured out this weekend:

1. The frigid, butt-crack-of-dawn walk from the heated camper to the heated bathroom because the short kid has to pee sucks.

2. Having the husband after the fact say “He’s a boy, why didn’t you tell him to piss off the deck?” sucks more.

3. My boots are no longer water-proof. Wet socks + cold = sucks.

4. First snow is fun.

Pics after the jump!

(Oh, and the orange vests—it’s hunting season. Though we’re not exactly stealthy going down the trail, it’s a better safe than sorry thing.)

Whatever you do, don’t tug on a branch.

Go…save yourself…

    Great pictures, you’ve got a lot of snow. The last picture is you? :popcorn:

    Yup. I was going to roost some snow for the shot, but the damn thing was in 4-wheel drive and I don’t know how to work the aftermarket unlocker thingy to put it in 2-wheel drive. So the photo’s a lot more boring than it was supposed to be.:tomato:
