Yep, their crowing has little to do with the sun, unless the sun comes up at 4:00 AM.

I really love camping. Putting up my little tent and rolling out the sleeping bag.

In the days before the FARK world party 2012 in Las Vegas, I camped out in Death Valley. Which in March was 80s and 90s during the day, perfect at night.

I climbed Wildrose Mountain, did hiking. And my site was across the street from an inn that had a pool available for only $5 a day so I got outdoors camping, but also the luxury of a pool.

The geology at Death Valley is fascinating and incredibly beautiful.

You wouldn't believe it, but you can and I did camp out right next to the ocean in San Francisco. Not in the Richmond part, but like at the end of the N-Judah line and then cross the great highway and go south around the sand dunes. No one there, just set up the tent. But there will be joggers in the morning.

Offer not advisable during foggy times, which can be frequent, or the winter where it could be cold and/or rainy.

I find that deer don't have so much of the stank, but they're more difficult to field dress correctly to avoid musk taint. Venison that people eat and complain of the 'wild' taste wasn't dressed right as there shouldn't be any extra steps to prepare venison or remove the 'wild' when cooking it. Some will soak it in milk, etc.

The skin and hair can never touch the meat, your hands can never touch the meat if they've touched the skin/hair, and the musk pod can never touch anything anywhere.

I know... so have to worry about the ass-end of a deer... and bear. The only time I messed up the meat of a deer was after tracking it for 1 1/2 miles! Never happened again. Always save the butt for last. I have even hung them front hoofs up so the pelt can hang off of the rear.

With the "wild taste"... I found that in different areas where you harvest deer have different deer tastes. I tend to avoid the wild-deer-tasting areas.  Also,  I've always brine the meat. Just out of habit... I'm afraid of parasites.  Oh, and if the meat is contaminated by musk... it goes in the trash.

Not unless they put that into the next GOP platform.  For most of my life, I've slept at night and stayed awake during the day.  Camping, or wherever; whenever.  The exceptions have included a night shift gig at a hospital, and gigs as a musician.

30 years ago, about a month before I moved to San Francisco, I bought an SF Examiner from the store that sold out of town newspapers. To see what was in the local news. It included news of murders happening in GG Park at night. But this was about 3 years before homelessness became a "thing" a "lifestyle". But in the Sunset part of the ocean, no one there and I have camped out there. I really should do it again, it's a fun break from routine.

Camping never changed my predilection for staying up all night and sleeping until the afternoon.  Fires are nice to watch, especially when nobody else is awake to bother you.

Wat? Sure it has...look at those mountains -- NO SUNSHINE on them. :)

media.theweek.com

Besides, as a life-long hiker/camper I am convinced it's combination of the exercise and the natural 'winding down' effect of natural dusk that has the desired effect. When I shut off the tv/computer at home at least half an hour before going to bed, and lower the lighting while I putter around cleaning the last of kitchen duty, setting up the coffee maker, etc., it has the same effect. I fall asleep within seconds of my head hitting the pillow.

Oh, and I am sure to go pee at least twice in the half hour before bedtime, too. Otherwise my bladder will wake me during the night.

We've got a similar but of course better thing down here in the REAL bay, by which obviously I mean Tampa Bay :)

Think of a big hook extending into the Gulf at the mouth of the bay, with beaches on the outside and a bird sanctuary on the inside.  That's Fort Desoto park.  Now put a worm on the hook.  That's Shell Key preserve.  It's surrounded by beaches and only accessible by boat.  Visitors are very careful not to leave trash, and what does get left gets cleaned up by Tampa Bay Watch, a green non-profit based out of Fort Desoto, armed with a fleet of kayaks and a passion for sea turtles.  Great place to camp in the spring and fall, with warm weather and gentle breezes, and a stunning view of sunsets over the Gulf.
