I spent a long weekend recently in a yurt in Grass Valley, California. It was somewhere between glamping and roughin’ it. There was a hot shower, but it was 50 yards away through a field of grass burrs. And there was a pretty garland of white Christmas lights inside the tent, along with an electric burner for hot water, but the bathroom facilities were… well, the bathroom facilities were a bucket with sawdust. So it wasn’t the most hardcore backpacker situation, but still a far cry from my city life in Oakland. And it was glorious.
