I'm up top 33 nights now. Just back from a prolonged trip to the Southwest: Owl Creek Canyon, Valley of Fire, Snow Canyon, Zion (three nights, with many trails closed due to weather/water/slides) Page, Lees Ferry, Chaco Canyon, Mesa Verde, Hovenweep, Devil's Canyon, Canyonlands Needles, Natural Bridges, Fremont Indian State Park....man, there are a lot of cool places out there! 20 Bag nights on this trip, plus a couple of nights in hotels to take a shower (Ute Cultural Center at Second Mesa, and Torrey, outside of Capitol Reef.

Here are a few photos:

My wife trying our my new table, which uses a sheet from the bed platform in the van ….works great. This is in Natural Bridges Nat. Monument...

Dead and Company is a cool way to get a couple bag nights. Drum circles keep you up all night? :)
How were the shows?
I still miss Jerry :)

Shows were great, wsp_scott! Though never like a Dead show. I miss Jerry, too, and the shows of old. You called it, very little sleep both nights, ear plugs only do so much!

I'll never forget those long summer nights way up north. And I was also surprised at how hot Fairbanks got. You guys will have your big Midnight Sun Festival before long. Kind of wish I was going to be there.
I remember having to cover my eyes with clothing in order to sleep in a tent. And playing hacky sack at midnight out near McCarthy.
