A cave with a view

Red wine, fire and cave

Out doing caveman stuff: friends, red wine, fire and cave (Click on the image for a larger version)

I spent the last weekend sleeping out in a cave. We went out hiking and decided to go ultralight. I ditched the tent and anything else that weighed me down. I packed a 35 litre rucksack with bare essentials. I even managed to leave my camera behind! It was a mistake. I took this panorama on my phone camera. After a bit of exploring we found this lovely cave with  perfect flat sandy base and a fantastic view. It provided excellent shelter from the howling wind that blew in that evening and we had a grand view over the plains below.

I took a freeze dried meal of Spaghetti Bolognese for dinner. It was a packet left over from a Himalayan expedition I did back in 2007 and had a use by date of 2009. I ate it anyway, and have survived so far. After some of the stuff I have eaten on my trips away my stomach can deal with pretty much anything.

We stared into the fire till late into the night
