For reasons unknown, we lost power yesterday. All day and most of the night. Now, I live in a heavily developed area, and our neighborhood was the only one without power, so it isn’t like being a hurricane victim. But I did notice that I am becoming entirely too attached to the luxuries of life. When I was a young soldier, spending days on end in the field, living out of a rucksack, with no computers or any electric devices at all was quite simple. Not an inconvienence at all.
I didn’t quite feel that way this time. While I felt some pangs of internet withdrawl, the worst was not having electric lights to read by.
But I did have a lifeboat as it were. I set up camp, in my garage.
That’s the kitchen of the camper. A nice little two burner stove, electric lights, some maple & brown sugar oatmeal (my favorite comfort food) and Michael Yon’s The Moment of Truth in Iraq.
After enjoying a liesurely dinner, it was time to retire for the evenings entertainment.
Here’s a few more pics of my setup.
If you are interested, the camper is made by company called Camp-Inn.
