Planning For American Ridge

It seemed that today was mostly about getting caught up on email, blogs, and letter writing – and planning for a two-night trip to the woods.

The plan is to take the long way home – through Mt. Rainier National Park so I can use my pass again. $15 more of value out of the $80 card – that brings the total to $63 of use.

So, what’s in the trunk so far:

  • 22 lb. of charcoal
  • Lighter fluid
  • Gallon of water
  • 2 water bottles – prefilled
  • 2 camp chairs (one supersize)
  • A 12-pack of seltzer
  • 40+ CDs
  • A case (12 bottles) of temprenilo (spanish red wine)

What is to come into the car tomorrow:

  • Overnight bag
  • Computer bag
  • And in the passenger foot well, a soft side cooler with a twelve pack of Diet Coke, all sorts of breakfast meats, ices, glasses, corkscrew

Drinks and dinner tonight at Swanda’s place in the city – working over the last bit of details for the upcoming funeral and wake – for a pig on a spit.
