    Forecasted highs in the 40's and lows in the 20's. One of my hunting buddies decided he is coming along, so I'm even more excited. This is going to be a great adventure.

    It is definitely tricky when you're walking up to an obstacle. If it's a shelterbelt, you could try zigzagging so you get a little time at each side. If you only cover one, it is a guarantee they...

    Heater... Check!

    "Bored out of my mind" sounds amazing. A few days of peace and quiet and no schedule is exactly what I need.

    WHOA! only 10K miles? I would be pretty furious on that one. That's my issue with the Nittos to a lesser degree. I'm only at 25K miles now, but I know they will not see another winter.
