Our camping adventure will commence in one short hour. I am inside sipping coffee while Brian packs the car. I’m not quite sure what emotions I am feeling. I think I am excited. I have to admit, I was a bit thrown when I learned there would be no running water to shower with for 2 days. I am also a bit scared of bugs, bears, not being able to fall asleep in a tent and traveling with raw chicken in an ice cooler. Luckily, before I cancelled the trip I received an email from Brian titled “camping supplies”…

Excerpt from Brain’s email-

For camping- snacks/fruit – im always good with protein bars and almonds, but as this is a special occasion maybe we want special treats:)  I would say for lunch – maybe charcuterie and fruit… 

I feel like the fact he mentioned the word charcuterie and camping in the same sentence is a good sign that I am camping with the right man and will survive the next 3 days.


“Some national parks have long waiting lists for camping reservations.  When you have to wait a year to sleep next to a tree, something is wrong.”
