I am going to Camp Redcloud in Lake City, Colorado this Saturday, so we are trying to check off some things on the to-bring list. 17 hour drive. In a 15 people van filled with 14 people. Over my birthday. Rachel is also gone the same week at Pine Lake. My dad is in Arkansas working too for the next two weeks. I just am a pessimist , nothing to be done with that. I just need to keep reassuring myself that He is there and it will be awesome. I'm also very excited that I will be taking my nice camera and I am super excited about the beautiful mountains.All the past week we've been buying active wear. -Broken-in hiking boots is a must.- The List. I just can't push myself to getting hiking boots. They are soooo ugly. There is no such thing as a stylish pair of hiking boots, but this camping experience won't be chic couture. So suck it up Sammie. Sigh.
