What have I gotten myself into?

Hope everyone has big, big plans this weekend....


We usually do NOTHING on Memorial Day... But this year, we are FINALLY going on our camping trip that we have been talking about for years...


I have been camping plenty of times before, but you know, the kind where you stay one night then head home in the morning for a nice, hot shower... or have a "campsite" with restrooms right down the road...


This is my first real camping trip... camping as in, hiking about 8 miles into the woods, setting up a tiny tent, building a fire and catching fish in the river or else go hungry for 3 days.


Eeeek! okay, I am a pretty "outdoorsy" type of girl, but I have never stayed 3 days anywhere without a bathroom... and I am the worst packer EVER (when we went to the beach, I forgot to pack Goose's swimshorts... seriously).

I have NO idea what I should be taking/wearing? any ideas/necessities?? anyone ever hiked and camped before?



The kiddos are not going with us, so hopefully it will be a fun, relaxing weekend with Goosers and 2 other couples...




I think it will... as long as we don't run into any of these:







So, if I am not back by Monday, please send out a search party in the North Georgia Mountains!!



Have a great holiday weekend everybody!! =)
