 Ran into a big problem last night.  When I crawled into my sleeping bag, Big Agnes (my air mattress - Big Agnes is its brand name) was flat.  I refilled Big Agnes hoping  that I hadn't tightened the air valve enough the first time.  But, no, Big Agnes was flat again in short order.  This was just great!  I had five nights ahead sleeping on wooden tent platforms and nothing to cushion it with.  I left Big Agnes in place and crawled in my bag for a cool night on a hard surface.  After a fitful night's sleep, I woke up with aching hips.

Cooking area, the most primitive of our trip.
