We recently tested our new toy out at Portage Valley, about an hour drive from Anchorage. We stayed at the campgrounds Black Bear...for some reason I don't feel like I would encourage the bears by naming the campground after them. But I strangely felt much safer sleeping all snuggled up on the queen sized mattress and layers of blankets inside the bed of the truck. I might be able to handle more camping this summer.
Our friend, Jared, joined us while his other half was out of town. Notice, he has the real deal backpackers tent set up outside out gigantic sleeping quarters. Eh, details. And if your curious, our 80lb dog slept in the tent with us, just as she always does.
