Yep, we survived BRAN. Nicol, Kevin and future teamFIRE member Brandon setting up camp in tent city. Lots of hills, but nothing we couldn't handle. Hope all who are doing TDN have as much fun as we did!

Hey Kimberly! :)

Yeah, I don't think I have camped since I was a kid and then I think it was mostly in cabins, so this was a new experience for me.

Since it rained so much during the trip, we ended up sleeping 2 nights out of 6 in school gyms. Sleeping in the tent was peaceful and lovely. I want more of it. One thing I was glad I took was my little Coleman lamp. I needed a light in the morning while getting ready in the tent. We got up pretty darn early most everyday. I think a lot of people just brought flashlights, which would work too.

I loved the trip, rain and hills and all. I met the most eclectic and interesting group of people and miss them already!

I know the TDN people are going to have a blast. Camping and riding is just a very enjoyable experience.

I bet Kevin will write something up (hopefully) on his blog about it all. It was really quite an experience.


You guys are in for a great time, I suspect.
