She's gone daft

Today, J and I go back out camping. I'd planned on leaving tomorrow, but we'll catch better weather going early. I'll decide later about sticking it out through the 30% chance of thunderstorms for a few days.

Went to a sporting goods place yesterday afternoon and loaded up some more - finally got a camp fire grill and an iron for cooking sandwiches and pies. I don't know how much more my little car can hold. I did nix a big purchase: an inflatable two man canoe I coveted. I had a hard time managing the box; I couldn't fathom largely manipulating it on my own once inflated. It was $140 down to a mere $80, so it was quite tempting. However, it didn't come with paddles and the el cheapo ones were still $40 each; I couldn't see paying over $160 for some stuff that would usurp so much room in the car while being tough to handle and simultaneously delicate.

I'm still on a hunt for the one man inflatable kayak I saw before that seemed as manageable as a regular pool lounger.

Just to remind you, this is what you're missing.




As my grandpa, who just would have had his birthday, always said, "Come go with us!"

Loving your pictures (photographic and painted/artistic). Somewhat envy your camping trips and outings. At least you have the option of travelling in a canoe/kayak. Down here in my neck of the woods, there have been a few days recently, where a canoe would have been a decent way to travel...downtown. Heh.

Have fun!

I am scared of water, so I am not much the boat person. It looks very pretty and peaceful though.

Have a blast
