Hi and welcome back!

Last night I bivied in the back yard.  I expected it to be in the low 40s, so I was going to sleep in the 40-degree bag, but at the last minute I decided to sleep in a 20-degree bag.  I'm glad I picked that bag, because at one point during the night I woke up, and it was 27 degrees!

The Seven Summits
Dad and I just went for a hike around the field, and the tree frogs were ("peepers") were really loud.  It's strange, because I heard them for the first time last night when I went out to bivy.  We haven't heard them in months (they're quiet through the winter), and it was like someone flipped a switch.

How about a trivia question?  Do you know the name of the first person to climb the Seven Summits (the high points on each of the seven continents)?

Thanks for reading!
