Last night I started rounding-up my gear for the trip. Talk about a mess! Seems like my hunting/camping stuff breaks camp during the summer and spreads out to a hundred locations...some in garage, some in storage shed, some in basement and a small contingent takes refuge in camper. My favorite part is discovering the lost tote which has gear I forgot I even had. We have developed a crude "gear list" (will post later) and I am taking stock of what items will need to be purchased and formulating a plan to have packages shipped in a manner as to not draw attention from my better-half.
