My thoughts on these temp were bittersweet. The positive was that this was the kind of challenging experience I was seeking when I decided to fly to AZ. The negative is that I woke up shivering a few times during the night. It wasn't a big deal, but it did inform me that I would need to improve my shelter at our next camp.

After the video I decided to erect a completely different style of shelter. In the end I built a tent style shelter with a piece of plastic on one end to block the wind. I'll give more info on the shelter as well as a video on my blog for day 9.
