First camp out with Le Tigre! Lake Somerville 10-23-10

Here's some photos of our first camping trip with Le Tigre.  We spent the weekend at Lake Somerville, near Brenham, TX, with Angie's brother Joel, his wife Holly, their dog Vincent, friend Jesse, and of course Kipper.  Good weather overall but there were a few showers.  The entire group even had to retreat into Le Tigre to ride out one of the heavier showers.  It was pretty cozy but we stayed dry.  Before the trip I replaced the 12 volt water pump and the faucet so we could use the on-board water tank.  The campsite also had water but no electricity.  We got to try out the propane stove, the 12 volt system, and some new camping gear.  Everything worked well but we did come back with a list of things we need to improve on.  We're going to make some tweaks and have already reserved a campsite at Pedernales for a couple of days the week of Thanksgiving to test
Le Tigre again!

The days were cloudy but the night sky was clear and the moon so bright it cast shadows!
