Yup. We didn't have personal wipes back then. Foot powder, a wash cloth, and a beat up old wash basin.

And the joy and terror of lighting a mountain stove, in the winter, in the tent to warm up, and watching as the flame went so close.
Pants stuffed in the SBag to have a pair of warm ones to put on.
God I am getting misty eyed. Gotta find a Kleenex Eh.
OK back- those were the days.

I found out the power outage at work yesterday was caused by the construction crew that damaged the line leading from the hydro pole to the building when they worked on the street during the fall. They should be made to pay the wages of the employees that weren't able to work during that time, but they won't. They probably will have to pay for all the food that was spoiled due to the hydro being out.
