When envisioning the trip, we had agreed that once it got dark, we would be most comfortable up in the tent. We wondered whether or not we would become comfortable enough to hang out after dark around the campfire. Aided by gin and tonics and evening chores, this first night we stayed up well after dark.
Before climbing the ladder up into the tent, we did go together to the pit toilet a short distance away. Staying up after dark around camp was never an issue again.
