Almost Ready

Wednesday, July 17, 2013

Most of today was spent preparing and packing for my trip.

I seem to be very scatter brained these days. I put all the camping gear except the sleeping bag in one bag. Dan had filled the sleeping pad with air for me yesterday so we could make sure it didn’t leak. After the bag was packed, I saw the sleeping pad. It had lost air but was it from a leak or because the air inside got cool? Oh wait! I already packed a different sleeping pad that does not need to be blown up. Now I don’t have to take the pump. Ended up unpacking all the camping gear, removing the pump, and putting the camping gear in another bag which also accommodated the sleeping bag. Whew! I finally feel like I’m ready. Tomorrow will just be packing the last minute stuff before heading out. Thank goodness for packing lists!


Dan and I did drive by our new place to determine how far it is from a fire hydrant (200’) and the fire stations (1 mile for Cal Fire and 1.5 miles for Groveland FD). Getting fire insurance is tough in a potential wild fire area. Many carriers will not even quote it and others are EXPENSIVE!

Yesterday, as I pulled out camping gear, I moved wrong and a horrible pain went through my hip area. It lasted all day and all night and into today. Fortunately, it is slowly going away. I’m moving very carefully. I will NOT let this deter me from my planned vacation.
