    Post your 2016 Bag Nights here! Don't forget to post a pic!

    There are no official rules, but a bag night here is typically defined by a night out camping in some form. It doesn't matter if you sleep on a tarp, in a tent, or in the back of your car. It is more of an attitude thing. If you are outside to enjoy nature, if it's camping, it's a Bag Night.

    This is the first time I've been on the board this early in the year. It was an awesome way to end one year and begin another!

    It was nice to get out. Based on the evidence in the trees, the river right behind the tent was up about 35 feet during the Christmas Day flooding that pummeled the south-east...leaving this campsite under about 8-10 feet of water. Hard to imagine.

    Quick weekend trip with some friends. 20-30mph winds but we have fun anyway! We eventually got the tent better secured than in the picture once the rain stopped.

    Second bag night of the year. Testing out my new tarptent. I had planned on hiking a few more miles out but the trails were all under 10 inches of water from the rain this week.

    [​IMG] out for third overnighter this year. Trails were pretty wet, hence the clothes hanging in the trees.

    Do mine count in Island Park ....... we are still in sleeping bags on an air mattress..... portable electric heat, no water, a coleman stove and a detached outhouse? The roof is there...so it's like a big camping trailer, just no wheels????? Heck a camping trailer probably has more amenities right now.
