but we're going camping this weekend to a place where it the daytime temp will be at least ninety degrees. i can't wait! not actually a big fan of heat as it makes me feel sluggy and sickish but i do love me a road trip and camping with the mister. since we're staying two nights i am bringing a tablecloth and some other happy, pretty things to make our camp look more a-go-go. there will be quilts involved and perhaps some happy pillows and most definitely the ukes and a deck of cards and some music.
we'll be frugaling it on he road which means we splurge on our usual campout/road trip snacks like peppered salmon and dried fruit and hot dogs from joe's. i'm making up a loaf of gingerbread as well and we have the fixins for s'mores and hot chocolate though this time around i didn't get my act in gear to make up our own chocolate mix. i'll do that for the next trip.when we a-go-gos go we like to leave super early and noodle along. sometimes i'll yelp out food places and look for points of interest by using flickr as a search tool. we often stop for photo ops and overall it is pretty easy going. the ipod is loaded up with audio books from both david and amy sedaris as well as oodles of podcasts from npr. when we travel through icky cities we listen to music and such when the scenery is pretty we drive along in quiet. it's a good thing we get along and balance each other out. we hit the hay early but we wake up before sunrise so we get to see all the pretty morning. when there is shade, we definitely nap and if there is water we take a plunge.
i can't wait! are there any tried and true traditions you have when you hit the road or camp out? the pics are from various road trips...just to make this look al ittle more interesting.
