I'm off!


Well, after a quiet Fourth of July evening at home with Hickory the Wonder Dog, I'm off for three nights of camping and kayaking in the Adirondacks tomorrow.  I hear tell they have bears in them thar woods, so I figure it's the perfect time to resurrect "The Great Smoky Mountains... or... The Second Worst Camping Trip Ever".

Since they do post warnings there about black bears, I hereby promise NOT to keep food in my tent or use Ben Gay during this trip.  

If I get eaten by a bear, it's been great blogging with you!  (And if I win Miss Yvonne's contest you can bury the gum with what's left of me.)

This is Chauncey... I met him on my last camping trip.
He's definitely not as scary as a bear
but he does have kinda scary eyes.


P.S.  Here are some other harrowing tales of camping you might enjoy while I'm away....  Phantom Canyon, Sweet Dreams, The Killer Raccoon of Kejimkujik.

Hopefully you return intact, bearless, and with no need of peppermint legs. I think bears are more partial to wintergreen than peppermint.

Deb: Thanks for the info about the wintergreen. I'll also be sure not to chew on any wintergreen life savers while I'm there. Even if it is fun to make them spark in the dark.

I second what Deb says- return intact, BUT return with with some hysterical all's-well-that-ends-well story of excitement and adventure with a little dose of the what-was-I-thinking? thrown in.

I can ask, can't I?

Camping is unnatural and designed to make husbands feel superior about their ability to put up tents in the dark. You are resurrecting long-buried memories. I may need therapy. Have a great time.

The closest that I will get to camping is staying at bad hotel. Enjoy Mother Nature!!!

I'm Back!

Nanodance: You can look forward to "Be a Good Camper, Henry!" coming soon to a blog near you!

MME.DeFarge: Of course it's unnatural, but where else can I go where no one can find me or reach me by cell phone?

Hit 40: Better Mother Nature's filth than some other slob's!

I was going to echo what Nanodance said ... basically, hope it's a safe trip but one that'll provide a good story or two : ) Can't wait to "Be a Good Camper, Henry" : )

I'm assuming, since you left a nice comment on my blog, that you survived the bear attacks, unless you were commenting posthumously, in which case...DANG GIRL. That's some bloggy dedication.

CatLadyLarew said...

KLo: Hopefully, "or two."

Cat: I plan on writing extra blogs to be posted posthumously in the event of my untimely demise. Just to keep people guessing.
