Been pretty busy for the me the past few months. Been doing a lot of writing – online, not on any stories. Yeah, I know… there are some people out there who want me to keep writing those samurai yarns… someday I will.
But for now, it has been working online making some extra money. Not this coming weekend though… I need a break!
I am all set to go camping. My backpack is loaded with EVERYTHING I need. No extras on this trip, just the needed basics. I even have some new kit I am planning on testing out.
The bad news is that the weekend forecast is calling for steady rain and some nasty thunderstorms mixed in. So it’s gonna be a sucky weekend to be outside.
On top of that the temps are in the upper 60s for a high during the day where I want to go. Cool and wet.
Should I Go Camping… Or Go To The Cabin?
I have to tell you, I am supposed to bring my little dog along with me camping. Right now, due to the crap-o-la weather that is coming I am leaning toward just going to the cabin for the weekend.
It sure would make things a lot easier.
But I REALLY want to go check out the Black River State Forest. You can do dispersal camping there! Hike in, find a spot to camp and relax while enjoying the outdoors. Well, maybe not if it is going to pour rain and hurl lightning down at you from the sky.
Or maybe… just maybe… I stay home and veg our watching movies and ordering in some food?
It’s good to have some options in life.
Future Camping Trips?
I do have a future trip planned for up on the Brule River in northwest Wisconsin. Trout fishing and camping on the Brule! That is going to be a good time. Even if it’s pouring rain I really want to go on that trip.
Next year I have a Boundary Waters Canoe Trip being planned as well. And I may try and see a few more of the various State Forests in Wisconsin.
Or go to the cabin…
