HALT Winter Camp 2019

We had our best winter training camp ever this year!  Tons of snow and temperatures down to single digits made it a great time to be in the snow.
We were all able to dig snow caves although I made mine too short and kept hitting the roof as I slept in it.

Mason Valley Backpack

Second half of the Camelback award was at Mason Valley/Chariot Canyon section of the CRHT and some of the PCT out to Rodriguez Spur fire tank.
We had crazy cold, windy weather at the Pedro Fages Monument trailhead but it was nice once we got down into the canyon.

Redis on Docker for Windows

  4. The standard port (6379) won't be exposed to other apps so you have to figure out which port to use. So run docker ps. You will get a listing of the running containers with the ports. Notice that my redis instance has its standard port exposed on 32769.

  5. Use the address and port you just discovered when configuring your client.
