This weekend I am setting out to try a new adventure. Well, not necessarily new, I just haven't done it in almost ten years! But the new part is doing it somewhat by myself! Yup, I am going camping! Why? you wonder? why not?
A month ago I overheard my sister's friends planning their annual camping trip. They go twice a year up to a friends property upstate and camp for four days. It has evolved into an "event" equipped with a pig roast, Chicken BBQ and rumored a truck with four kegs on tap. (not that i am a beer drinker) So I thought to myself, this would be perfect. I could bring my own tent, camp out and partake in the activities in the manner I best saw fit. So I wiggled my way on the invite list and now this weekend is here!
I have to admit, I am pretty excited! I can't remember the last time I had to only pack and plan for just myself! I have enjoyed being self sufficient planning and packing and plan to really relax and enjoy myself! If I want to go for a run, I can, whenever I want! If I want to just sit and read..... I CAN! Sure for the younger campers its more about the food and beverages, I on the other hand will get to experience a quasi solo camping trip with in the safety of a group! Its not about reliving my youth... or running away (okay maybe a little), but more about something that I personally want to do for myself! Plus, I'll have my camera.. and sure to get some good shots of some pretty funny sh&t!!
