The morning routine in the backcountry is a unique experiment in human behavior. The first person to crawl out of their toasty sleeping bag has to balance how badly they have to pee & how cold it is with how good the fire’s going to feel & how delicious the coffee’s going to taste. The rest get to enjoy the warmth of the latter. I’m an early riser and often wind up wrestling with this decision for a while before both liquid urges get the better of me. Which are you? 🔥 ☕️

    I’m always the first up, and get the fire going early. Nothing like campfire coffee. It’s the crackle sound of kindling that forces the pee 🙂

    When we went up Kilimanjaro years ago, our Porters would bring coffee to the tent in the morning. One of the most luxurious things I’ve ever experienced.

    I am the first one up. There is magic in the sunrise. And the coffee.
