Camping for a few afternoons every now & then is a single of my number one things I like to do doing. Surviving free of new technology for a little while truly helps myself and others put this electronic age into perspective, then yeah of course technology is very useful, although I guess we would all be able to adapt in no time if we ever have to go without, and i mean I have little trouble doing this, & I got as several gadgets as anyone, at least, this is how I used to think; Unfortunately, because of the last camping trip I went on, I have had to reconsider my position on the issue. Usually when I go camping in the winter, I take a small portable space heating system with me. Although my space heating system is just for emergency use, as it’s never supposed to be needed. Usually what I will do is cut up some dry wood & make a small fireplace to stay warm! However it becomes much harder to light a fireplace when it is raining outside. As in this case, a sizable storm – not expected to form – just happened right over my campsite, well okay, that’s why I had a backup plan with my space heater. I have had my space heating system for a while, so I never thought about replacing it. However, I should have known to replace it sooner rather than later. Anyways, it got a lot colder than I expected & after an minute of using my space heater, it died out on me… That whole night was horrible, & all I could believe about was how happy I would be if I were home, underneath an actual roof, having my control component turned up to a 100 degrees.
