The count down is on to my next trip south and I needed to try out a few new things and brush up on some old things before I leave. I had been looking forward to my first camping trip of the year for awhile, and the anticipation escalated after recently seeing campgrounds open, sites set up and imagining camp food cooking and fires crackling!
I had a window of opportunity this weekend!
I was nervous heading to a different part of Kananaskis to camp, but I need to get use to camping in unfamiliar areas. The forecast was not perfect, but I need to get use to camping in not so ideal conditions. I was nervous but I knew the bright side would over take and win.
...and it did...
I checked in really, really, really early which wasn't an issue with the attendant. Before doing anything, I chopped wood with my new axe and got my camp fire going. A proper axe makes all the difference in the world. It's a keeper!
Dinner cooked quicker then I expected and I made a mental note to remember that!
That mental note went by the way side and my breakfast cooked quicker then expected too!
I made progress with my one nighter so now it's time to progress to two nights.
