An absolutely beautiful day here today. DD mowed both huge lawns, stripped and made our beds, did laundry. I was so tired after work, but lots to do.. Paid bills, have laundry going again, made some calls.
This weekend will be pre-packing and checking things off their lists. We have a space ready on the futon here in the lodge. DD already has most of her things packed.. of course, she is not excited..
I have more hours to work next week, since I took Friday off to tack onto my vacation. We have the lists of restaurants we are going to try, info on all beaches, most of food packed.. check.
that is the easy part... cramming it all into my car with a battering ram and gigungo bungee cords is the hard part. Even with our streamlining this year, two people have lots of stuff for a whole week in the forest.
Once we get to Paradise, we need to have everything,, they roll the streets up at 6PM sharp.. no gas, no food, no nuttin'!!
The first year I went, I had all of my cabin windows open and the only sound was the waves lapping on shore of Lake Superior. Ahhhh.. I can hardly wait..
ONe of the jokes I shared on a couple of my teams is related to our huckleberry picking in the deep forest up there.
Camper: "I heard that grizzly bears won't bother you if you carry a flashlight."
Ranger: "That depends on how fast you carry it."
