Itching To Go!

Is it time yet?  I am itching to go!!

Momma Sharon's checklist is full of red check marks.  She only has 3 that she's working on . . . LOL!! One is for the things we will need for the SC DOG, another is a pre-season list to get me ready, and the third is our menu and grocery list for all the cooking we are going to be doing.  There's simply a lot to do to get ready for the first camping trip of the 2016 season.

Now on top of all that, there's the whole issue of packing up Splish for the trip rather than Pilot.  Let me tell you something, Momma Sharon's hair sprouted wings because she was so hot outside packing and unpacking, arranging and rearranging, moving stuff here and there.  Splish has a bunch more cargo room, but it's a whole 'nuther thing to pack a truck rather than a SUV.  There are those big tall sides to deal with!!

I think this might have been the 2nd arrangement Momma Sharon tried

The biggest obstacle is our Yeti.  For this trip, it's going to stay where you see it.  I think it's going to be a big hassle no matter where we put it.  It's simply too heavy when filled with ice and food to lift in and out of the Canyon, especially since Aunt Becky has only one good arm. No worries…we'll figure it out this weekend!

There are a few items to go in tomorrow morning: a couple picnic tins, DOG goodie bags, Aunt Becky's chair, and my little broom (if Momma Sharon can ever find it).  And as you can see, we still have lots of room!

I will turn the computer back to my Camper Mom so she can send out Postcards each evening, but I'll be back next Monday with Stories from Cheraw State Park and the SC DOG.  Until then, always remember . . . 

"Peace, Love & The Excitement Of The First Camping Trip Of The Season!"


  1. Oh wow! It's just too exciting getting ready for that first trip of the season. Mr. R turned on my fridge Sunday afternoon, and I think he's actually putting a few things in Levi right now. See you soon. -Pod
