Last weekend Jacob and I decided it was time to get way out in the woods and spend the weekend there. We had someone to watch the "fur" babies and a weekend with no work. This was an opportunity we didn't want to pass up. Even with a threat of really uncomfortable weather looming all weekend, we decided we were tough.
Conclusion, we are tough.
The cold didn't get to us. We had braved much colder than 36.
The wind however was bound and determined to ruin our weekend, but of course we wouldn't let it.
Every night I was fairly certain that the wind was either going to blow us away or a tree was going to fall on the tent and destroy everything. Not a bad way to go, really.
Or, even worse, we were going to set Pisgah National Forest on fire.
But, none of those things happened.
No one blew away or fell in the river.
No hooks wound up in places they shouldn't.
No on drowned.
And fish were caught.
