    Are the shelters already built or was building them part of the fun?

    I wish I could say I had a hand in building them. Jeff Hatch, a friend and a couple of his students built them. They have enough pine around them to where they could build a fortress. They have a really good start going.

    With the way it was setup it really was comfortable despite being so cold. Had to restoke the fire around 4am. I was warm in my sleeping setup but it sure was cold when I got out. Haha

    Yes, I got plenty of sleep. I was totally warm in my setup even when the fire burned down.
