Camping in Nevada

This past weekend Casey had the opportunity to go camping with the YM in the ward. After a 40 minute drive, a cooler full of subway footlongs, and a couple of sleeping bags, we headed into the wild unknown. Ok, maybe it wasn't that wild, but rugged nonetheless. *(My wife is making fun of me because she thinks nonetheless sounds too much like "Nevertheless" and should only be used in the scriptures...) We put up our tent in the dark and it took us about 2 hours to figure it out. Next time you go camping, be sure to arrive before the sun goes down.

We had a really cool fireside, that included the testimonies of everyone in the group. One of the young men told the Jospeh Smith vision and it was real powerful. It was a really cool experience.

That night, the temperature dropped about a million degrees and was so cold I thought I was going to die. Or at least lose my feet, because it was too cold. (You mean to tell me I'm supposed to bring more than a sleeping bag? This isn't Rexburg!) After waking up 5 times from the blizzard in our tent, and the boulders underneath my sleeping bag, the sun finally came up.

Besides my sleeping experience, it was a great campout. Beautiful mountains, trees, wildlife, camp fires, and some subway sandwiches.

Busy Week

Well, it has been a busy week in the Davis household.

For those of you who don't know, Rachel and I will be heading back to Rexburg! We will be heading back (on Dec. 8) to finish our schooling at BYU-Idaho. We are both looking forward to this and seeing the Pieper family again.

In anticipation of the move, Casey had to sell both of his go-karts.

Rachel and I are both look forward to a relaxing Sunday listening to General Conference!
