Hey all, Just thought I’d try posting again since I’ve talked to most people about what they’re bringing. Some things to consider bringing:
-Changes of clothes (for camping/biking/hiking/ and rafting–bathing suits etc)
-Good pair of hikers or sneakers for biking and hiking, sandals with backs or grundgy sneakers for rafting.
-Personal toiletries (for showers and stuff, toothbrush, deodorant, etc.)
-Snackage for Friday night (think campfire foods – hotdogs, sausages aka things that roast on sticks, and things like crackers and chips)
-Breakfast food/snackage for Sunday morning
-water? I’m bringing some bottles, but I don’t know how thirsty everyone is going to get.
-Sleeping bag/blankets, sleeping pad or air mattress, pillows. I think we have enough tents to go around, but you’ll need something to sleep on. Here’s the issue that I can think of…I know some of you guys WILL NOT share an air mattress with another dude. If you have no qualms, please lemme know so I can scronge up whatever extra air mattresses there are in the group. Also be aware that nighttime temps can/will drop into the low 60’s.
-Flashlights or lanterns, we’re in an area with no electricity.
-It’s going to probably be wet Friday night and during rafting, some Ziploc bags to store water sensitive items are a good idea.
-I’m going to be bringing a cooler, if you need a few things kept cold, you can toss them in there.
-lawn chair for sitting around the campfire.
-alarm clock or watch with alarm. We have to be up early Saturday morning…choose your way of getting awake.
-A few garbage bags, we need to take out everything we bring in. There is a garbage dump in the campgrounds we can use before we leave.
Reminder: Charge cell phones and any other electronics if you want them to work through the weekend.
At this point everyone is meeting at Dani and I’s place friday, aiming for about 6pm, I know some of you will be a little later. Then we’ll figure out who else is driving, since I’ll be driving one car.
Kelly and Randy, I don’t know if you’ll want to come down here or meet us somewhere along the NE extension. We’ll need to talk about this tonite.
BTW: I would appreciate if everyone could chip in like $7 for the campsites.
That’s it for now. :)
