I FINALLY got my way and we used the PUP as a hunting base camp AND we had a successful caribou hunt! My hunting partner wants to rough it in tents, but I think I won him over with a nice warm and dry PUP. I have to give big credit to the new Group 27 battery! It ran the furnace for two nights of near and below freezing temps. It even snowed on it, and we were very warm and comfortable, even in the 20 mph wind! Oh man, what a good time. We had warm meals and had a place to sit and eat out of the wind, and slept on a level soft surface and not in our full clothes! SWEET! Our campsite was just an eyebrow off the side of the Denali Highway about 30 miles in. At least it was only about 10 miles of gravel too. I busted my fresh water drain valve off though, so I will need to get a new one on it soon. I won't put water in it for the rest of the season anyway, but I need to fix it. A great trip.
