Mini Camping Trip Set

Went ahead and pulled the trigger on doing a mini-camping trip around Memorial Day this month. The auto-deploy tent that I’d ordered early last month completely vanished in-transit – tracking has it leave a facility in Colorado and POOF! It’s gone! So the sellers ended up refunding my money and I ordered a slightly different one from someone else. I figure I can use this to at least confirm that my new tent (which ideally, I should have by Monday) will work.

Amusingly (or perhaps irritatingly?), locally we’re doing our “Meat Meet” (wherein a bunch of dead animals are grilled) on that Saturday, but the campsite I’m heading to for that trip is only about 2 and a half hours away and I can’t check in until later in the day, so I’m likely going to at least show up for said Meat Meet.

Also in the process of actively trying to get back into the weight loss mindset. I’ve screwed around waaaaaay too much and I’m a crapton heavier than I want to be – at least 80 pounds heavier – so trying to get back to watching what I eat and cutting out unnecessary sugar. Walked into the office this a.m. which only further highlighted how out of shape I am.

And also trying to get my head right about running Traveller again in the foreseeable future but my brain is just super vapor locked which is yet another reason I need to go out into the woods and just reset my headspace…
