I genuinely will never forget the time when I went to a cabin deep in the woods with my wife.
I thought it would be the ultimate romantic getaway.
I figured we could do a little hunting and I could cook for my wife over the fireplace. I wanted it to be something really special, and I even brought along a good amount of wine, which I knew would help keep us warm on the inside. Well, the weather was okay when we arrived at the cabin, but then we were slammed by a serious winter storm that lasted for days. We were snowed in and it was kind of a frightening experience. I made sure to keep the chimney from clogging up with snow and I kept a fire roaring in the fireplace. Fortunately, I was able to access the wood supply which was substantial to last for the entire week even with the fire roaring regularly. We were able to keep the place nice and toasty and fortunately we had enough food to get through the storm. I mean by the third day we were eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and beans. I thought I would get some hunting time in but I was never able to do that. When we were able to clear the snow and a plow came out to help us, we decided to leave early. That was an experience that felt more like a week than three days, but I’ll always remember to bring an adequate food supply in the future instead of thinking I can just hunt for everything we need.
