Geminids under a Bortle one sky

Has been too long since I spent any significant time under the stars, so when I saw that the peak of the Geminids meteor shower coincided with a day off I was pretty excited. I did a bunch of scouting and planning in the days leading up, ultimately choosing to head north for the dark skies as the Geminids radiant was forecast at just 22 degrees above the horizon at my location. It was so good getting under some really seriously dark skies and an amazing experience to see this cosmic fireworks in display. I initially thought I might get some sleep, but nope, they meteors were firing almost all night and had me completely captured.
