Winter Camping?

Matthew and I went camping Friday after Christmas. We went to the Big Thicket National Forest near the Louisiana border. It was a pretty good drive (2 1/2 hrs), but it seemed to be time well spent since this is probably one of the last camping trips I will go on with Matthew before he graduates. A few pic's.
Putting up the tent. We had some practice at Philmont.

How many Eagle Scouts does it take to start a fire?
(Apparently one more than we had with us.)

Be Prepared, or just use some aluminum cans out of the recycle bin to boil water if you forget your pots. Matthew and I just ate or attempted to eat some "old" MRE's. I don't suggest the Tuna Noodle Casserole if it's been in storage for a really long time.

Chill'n by the fire. It's December 26, but notice the shorts and T-shirts. Good thing I remembered the bug repellent.

Sitting on one of the fallen trees in the forest. This is just one of the many trees that were blown down in the recent hurricanes. I wonder if anyone heard it fall?
