Brian and I bought a tent a couple years back, but we have yet to use it. We recently bought matching sleeping bags (duh, so we can zip them together!) and a LED lantern. We’re bringing fishing gear, and we already had a camp stove, so just add in a cooler stocked with good food and we are all set!
We are going to northeast Alabama, to one of the state parks. We’re getting an improved campsite that will have running water and electricity. We plan on fishing, hiking, swimming, and taking lots of photos of the beautiful scenery. Deer sightings are very common. We’re really just looking forward to having some quality time together more than anything else. There have been so many distractions lately.
I haven’t been camping since I was young enough to be a Girl Scout, but I think I’ll do OK. There is a bathhouse with showers and sinks so as long as I can shower off every day, I will survive. Brian is daring me not to wear any makeup at all, so we’ll see how that goes. Yikes. Pretty sure I’ll still be wearing some mineral foundation.
We’re leaving Saturday and coming back either Monday or Tuesday. Hey, if I’m going to get handed more furlough days at work, I’m going to take advantage of them.
