6:30AM - 24°F outdoors at 7,288 feet.
At dawn, the outside temperature dipped to 24°F at our 7,288 foot elevation. However, Little Mr. Wave6, our noble catalytic heater was able to keep the inside of MsTioga at 60°F. We started our forced air heater to make it a bit warmer.

The sky is mostly clear, but clouds are drifting in from the east. Mr. Sunny is hoping for enough clear sky to charge up his batteries without relying on Mr. Onan.

9AM - Cold but nice day.
The temperature is up to 38°F outside. We are guessing that we will need to keep Mr. Wave6 going pretty much fulltime. Our propane is a bit on the low side.

The Team has been thinking of going to a nearby town and trying to fillup on propane fuel. It is Sunday, and we are in Utah. So it is not clear if we will be able to buy propane today.

11AM - Team Meeting.
MsTioga called a Team Meeting to discuss the propane situation. MsTioga pointed out that we had never really tested our propane gauges. Our propane tank has a 14 gallon capacity. We are only allowed 80% of that capacity, so that means 11.2 gallons until bone dry. MsTioga cannot remember ever filling up more than 8 gallons.

We decided to tough it out on the propane that we have. Mr. Dometic, who would be most severly tested if there were no more propane, feels confident that we will be OK.

Mr. Wave6 looks like he will be on all day and nite long. The temperature has zoomed up to 42°F outside, but Mr. Wave6 has it a comfortable 78°F inside MsTioga.

11:30AM - Fly fishermen.
Several groups of people have come to test their luck fishing in the Duchesne River since The Team has been camping here. Nobody has caught even one fish. Nobody has had even one nibble!

Two nice looking trucks drove up, with building construction signs on the doors. The guys driving these trucks pulled out their fly fishing gear. We love to watch people fly fishing. It looks so cool.

7PM - Beautiful Camp Duchesne.
It has been a beautiful day at Camp Duchesne. The Sun was bright most of the day. When there were clouds, they were gorgeous clouds. From every one of MsTioga's windows is a gorgeous view.
