I bet it got real cold overnight! So, how close did y'all have to snuggle together to stay warm up there on Brokeback... er... Starr Mountain?

.... actually, we were remarkably warm........ the tent worked just perfect, El Cap........ hell, you should have come along with us..... you would likely have learned something useful.....

Damn was colder than that in your back yard during the Year of the Shovel.

It's because he is, after all, Gunga Frickin' Din.

I wondered just how long it would take for someone to come up with one of them smart-ass "Brokeback Mountain" wisecracks. Cappy, you did not disappoint.

I felt safe, though. Eric doesn't call himself the Straight White Guy for nothing.

Nothing makes you appreciate a hot dinner and a comforting dram of spirits than a three-mile hike up a mountain on a cold day... thanks, Eric, for inviting me along!

I got inducted into the "Order of the Icicle" when I was a wee pup. Camping in sub-zero weather was a frequent pastime during our sojourn into the frozen wasteland of Indiana back in the '70s.

Sounds like y'all had fun! Well, except for the climbing the mountain on foot bit. That's why there's logging trails and 4x4 pickups!

I have snow camped in tents and even tried the snow cave thing once. Amazing how warm a couple of candles can make a poor mans igloo.

Late as per normal:
I would have died, my history does not have ice other than in whisky.

Okay - Lee Ann wins with Gunga Friggin' Din ROFLMAO.

However, now that I read this I'm cold.
