After Thanksgiving we headed out towards Julian to do a little camping…Cory and Andrea rented an A-frame trailer for our home base. Becki and Patrick bought a fancy new tent with a foyer and met us at the campground that evening. It was a solid evening of cocktails, campfire and weenie roasting…and a very unfortunate discovery of a fire pit hidden in darkness found with Becki’s shin.
It was chilly out…but it was nice to have a little change of scenery/weather going on. The winds started to pick up and the clouds were flying by. The ranger cruised by and had us put out our campfire due to the high winds…so we all piled in the trailer to continue the evening. I’d say it worked out real nice…until it started to rain and B&P had to return to their tent. I felt bad for them out in the tent.
I woke up around 4am cuddled up with Megan and Lulu with the heater on and having to pee like a racehorse. I got out of the trailer and found out it was hailing outside…and then I felt even worse for B&P in their tent. Crashed out for a little while longer and when we woke up it was raining and hailing…so we decided we should pull the ripcord on camping and head up to Julian for a warm breakfast and then head home early.
We saw all kinds of accidents…people traveling faster than they should and running off the road. Snow and Ice is slick people…slow down. We made it up to Julian safe…got some breakfast…checked out the shops and hightailed it out of there as the roads cleared up.
I would have loved another day of camping…but it was kinda nice to get home and get ready for the week…ahhh the week…bleh.
