I started this post yesterday morning and was slammed with another heartbreaking call at work. I now am still boggled and not as prepared as I would like. This means I need this trip more than ever.
I plan on spreading everything out in 1 place. I will overpack a bit as I can leave things in the car but not buy things I may have forgotten.
This time I am going to be able to bring a cooler to the campground and I am going to try to carry more fresh cooked food that I reheat via stove and boiling water. Don't ask, I'll update on this possible catastrophe on Monday. I plan on having plenty of nuts and fruit and will drive into town to eat at a buffet if necessary.
I am concerned about the heat and hydration. I want to freeze everything but I am concerned now I won't have water until noon when all my bottles thaw. Last time I took a bladder in my backpack and it warmed to a "delicious" 98.6 degrees as it rested on my back thru-out the 10 mile hike.
On a side note my daughters camp lost my tent while I lent it to them for the week. Horrified, I tell them I need it for tomorrow!! Luckily someone located it but you can hear the anxiety building in my voice right?
I am planning on a wet one so I will bag everything and bring extra lights as a fire sounds doubtful. Sleeping in my car is always an option.
Wish me luck!
