I am cleaning up my camping mess, this blog is my break. I read LDRICHEL's Blog "Packing In The Protein: Day 2 (Pssst...It's Working!)" She took these ingredients and created her own yummy protein shakes with her own personal touch. Adding our own personal touch to things helps to build self confidence and thinking out of the box.
I got some great tips from one of the more experienced hikers who keeps all of his camping gear in plastic bins. When it is time to camp he loads them in his truck and every so often he restocks and cleans them.
I took his tip and gave it my personal touch.
My shopping bags are soft so they don't damage the car seat, lighter to carry & the free form makes them easy to pack in a car. All you do is hose them down then leave them out to dry.
I am still working on packing light and I had some significant improvement on this trip to Yosemite. Who knows I may even graduate to Backpacker level.
I really enjoyed the movie Wanderlust with Jennifer Aniston & Paul Rudd. I loved the Penguin scene with the HBO executives reminds me of the folks who still use plastic bags instead of re-usable bags. Watch the movie and let me know what you think.
These are the kind of people who just don't care about anything but themselves. They will just keep creating more trash because the world is their trash can, right? A few venues are banning plastic bags, but just a few. Why is it taking so long to make this change? Why aren't we all there already? Get those reusable bags and you can use them for everything. We don't want to be like those HBO executives in the movie!
I am going to have to get off my soap box before I go on a rant about the selfish people in this world who can't be bothered to care about the environment. Suffice to say "The world is not your trash can plastic bag users!"
Watch the movie and let me know what you think! I am afraid I have rambled a bit
Have a great day, I need to get back to clean up.
