My Cloth Castle-

So far the day camping thing is going well. The Sportz II truck tent seems to be adequate for my needs. A place to sleep. I am sleeping as well as I do at home, so I am not losing anything. I am reasonably comfortable. So far nobody in authority has decided that this is not a good idea.

I feel better not driving in a fog of weariness. This is safe. I am very unlikely to kill myself or anyone else if my crashing is simply a metaphor for going to sleep.

It is a pleasant little space, my cloth castle. It is not a place on the ground, that I must crawl into it and concern myself with floods and easy access to vermin. It is in the bed of my truck. The bed I use to haul furniture and garbage. Now it is also my bed of sleep.

I do plan to add a radio to my kit. Today it would have been nice.
