It was easy, Troy. The joys of the 'early' morning Astrofest routines:- watching Taurus, Orion and Canis Major rise above the ridge line; checking signs of the Possum Raiders; writing the overnight minimum temperature in the tabletop frost; vegemite on toast as the sun rises; sitting in the sun to enjoy brekkie and saying "G'day" to the morning walkers; mist on the Brisbane River; hot shower in Bayley House block; watching the magpie gang chase each other around the sky; feeling Snug as a Rug in a Bug in my beanie and warm clothes.

And of course, an afternoon sleep doesn't go astray.

Cheers.

After that event I am sure that you put "Tent" at the top of your checklist!
