Into the woods
Pete and I have been talking about camp-paddle-return (probably a night and a day long) canoe trip down the Saco River sometime before the end of the month. I know that some of you are dead-set against The Great Outdoors unless there's good plumbing, but surely we can coax couple of takers for the trip, right? Just let me know if you might be interested. Once I hear, we can plan.

I'm interested. I have no fear of the outdoors. But I lack equipment and sleeping things.

I have two backpacking tents which are smallish but keep the bugs out. I can also probably lend you a mummy bag if it comes to it. I think we'll probably rent the canoes unless we suddenly know lots of people who have them.

I'd have to wear clothes, right?

Were you planning to go feral on us?

But, as Burke discovered, you'll have to wear clothes...

Tell of the insanity?

More pressing, do you have gear?

Hmm.

I can get two tents. I have two backbacks. We need a white gas stove...We need a dutch oven....hmm...we need beer and a water purifier.
I'll shell out for the water purifier and teh gast stove....
We then need to plan a menu.

a) How big are the tents? Are we talking two more two mans?

b) Won't need them. The campsite is right on the river, which means anything we paddle with will go directly from car to canoe. I'm far more concerned about sleeping bags/pads.

c) I'm not sure we need a gas stove and dutch oven. We have a grill, and we need a cooler or two.

d) Water is available at the campsite.

e) Yes, as soon as we firm up plans, we'll figure out who can and can't eat what.

As for gear, I've got a sleeping bag, but not much else. (I've got a day-pack, but it's not built for having a sleeping bag lashed to it.)

What's with the packs? Won't need it. Sleeping bag is fine.

The month, she is approaching her end...

I was told, much to my chagrin, that I have to go back to the V.A. on Wednesday and Friday of this week (to have a *second* pre-employment TB test, on top of the one I already passed and the chest x-ray), which means the soonest I can get to Boston will be Friday night (probably after 10). How (if at all) would this affect my being able to join you for camping?
