    Devils Nose Winter Hike/Camp

    2017. This is our forth year hiking up on the mountain here in West Virginia. We had a blast today and everyone is tucked in there tents and sleeping bags. I'm sitting around the campfire listening to Classic Country Music and now posting. Kinda nice being in the mountains with signal.
    Here's some pics of the day.

    Victoria joined us this year for the first time. She's really enjoying the winter camping.

    Headed to the campsite. Both my sons, and two friends. It's fairly warm tonight 27*. We have had trips in the single digits.

    Sweeeeeet!!!! It's been a long time since I winter camped. It was fun to come out of the tent to a light covering of snow.

    I'm back home safe and sound...and sore. I need to get my fat a$$ out more and exercise before I climb all over the mountains. We had a Grand time . We are going to do this every year now so if anyone want to join us let me know.
    It's on my "bucket list" to ride and camp on our beloved TWs unfortunately the area we camp in doesn't allow motor vehicles. Do any of you guys on the East Coast camp on TWs?

    More pics of our camp out.

    Breakfast: I love cooking meals in my old steel skillets. Lite Spam, tomatoes, jalapeŮo's, tortillas and mayo. The guys love these things.
