Disney Dark Side: Day 3

Sunday was Half Marathon day! We woke up bright and early but thankful for the approved walk path to the start line from the Polynesian. Instead of having to wake up at 3:00 AM, we got to "sleep in" until 4:15 and we were on our way by 4:45. Felt like a Disneyland race...

Camping Gear Review: The Nube

Today we are talking about my favorite gear for camping, The Nube by Sierra Madre Research!

This is basically a suspended tent for your hammocks. Jared and I love our tent, but never slept very well on our camping trips due to sleeping on the ground. Plus, our tent would flood during those lovely Texas spring rainstorms.

Enter the Christmas I bought Jared a hammock. He is so excited about it, he tells me about this fantastic company called Sierra Madre Research. And, they have an ingenious system that allows us to sleep well and stay dry.

So naturally, I thought it would be nice to reminisce about warmer times, three years ago when my mom, brother and I went to Vero Beach for a few days.
