Well, we survived the first night! Subzero temperatures, frozen ground and ice on the tents all added to the experience.
Everyone said they were warm and toasty in bed last night and were quite reluctant to get up this morning.
Cooked breakfast and a bit of warmth have eased the cold and everyone is ready for the day. Pioneering and a geocaching hike on the program for today.
Rain and warmer temperatures forecast for later and a campfire this evening unless it is raining too much.
