My friends and I decided to spend a week camping in the desert. We went during the Spring months, because we didn’t want the temperatures during the day to be 100° or higher. We had temperatures around 80 during the day. I didn’t expect such cold and freezing temperatures at night. It might have been 80 during the day, but it was in the 30s at night. I almost froze to death. Luckily, I had a tent with pretty good insulation. The 10 is made for camping in extremely cold temperatures. I didn’t have a space heater. A battery operated heater really would have come in handy on a couple of the nights when it hovered close to freezing. If I had been alone, I might have gone to the camping store for a heater. Since I was with my friends, I had to tough it out and make the best of the cold situation. If I would have complained about being cold, my friends would have given me a hard time and they probably would never let me live that down. It was better just to stay quiet and suffer in silence. When I finally came home at the end of the week, I swear that I spent the next 48 hours in bed under the covers with the heater on high the whole time. I think it took a while before my body thought out and returned to a normal temperature. I don’t know if I would honestly try desert camping again. I can’t imagine the conditions would be any better during a different time of the year.
