This year I did not get to the Knapin until dinner time Monday evening.
It was balmy enough by Knapin standards that I decided to sleep under the stars.
This was a first ever for me at the Knapin due to how cold it usually is there during March.
The stars were out in full and I had the main fire to myself.
Canada Jim and I were the last ones up at the main fire until way late.
I slept in until lunch time, awakening to the sounds of camp and then dozing off
again in to dreams that blended in to the activities around me.
It was a much needed break from my normal activities.
The morning sun warmed my blankets while a couple of kids playing at the main fire wood pile
started talking to me as though I was awake.
So I obliged them with some conversation and decided to get up.
It was a beautiful sunny day.
