The sun in shining and it's going to be in the mid-sixties if we're lucky. Thats right, autumn is upon us here in Fairbanks, Alaska. And it is August 24th! In my past, August is a month of heat, humidity, late night lake dips, slurpee runs, and camping outside without need for a 0° sleeping bag.
Now that I'm in Alaska, all this has changed. We are going camping this weekend to the North Slope. There is obviously snow on the mountains already and I'm hoping that the tundra has frozen so I won't sink down with every step I take. We are camping in -20° bags and we'll be suited up in down coats, thermals, and bunny boots. I love this weather. You think I'm joking?
