The past week has been crazy. Running around trying to get everything organized before I leave.  It's been interesting cause all my stuff is in storage and I think, oh, I can use...uh oh, that’s  packed ..somewhere...

I went to visit Grandma on June 28th (Monday) and Kyle came with.  We had a good visit.  I discovered the affects of Monster engery drinks (insert two claw fingers plus roarring sounds here) and Kyle admitted  he’s too school for cool.

The trip began when I left Kelowna on Tues (June 29th).  Didn’t get out of town til 1:30pm.  Had to get Natasha’s Speed and go to Staples yet again. I’m sure the poor girl at staples thinks I’m now stocking her ( staucking, stalking, how the hell do you spell stauking?).

I drove to Jewel Lake (about 20 min outside of Greenwood) to visit M&D.  Got there around 4pm.  Had a good dinner of steak, roasted potatoes, corn on the cob and garlic shrimp. Yum.  We got some good pics of the funny sunglasses, lol.

It was a great visit, who can resist the blueberry teas.  Left around 11:30am, headed to Nelson.  Got there around 2:45pm and went to visit Deb @ KIS.  It was great to finally meet her in person.  She rocks!

Left Nelson around 3:45 – 4pm and headed towards Cranbrook.  Figured I’d find a campground on the way.

I’m now at the Goldilocks of provincial camp grounds.  First I went to Yahk and it was too empty. Serious ghost town.  Then I went to Moyie Lake but it was too full.  Finally I went to Jimsmith Lake and it was just right!

I didn’t arrive til 8pm MST (crap, lost an hour).  Got the tent up in no time and the fire going too.   I cooked up two hot dogs over the fire – a fitting first campfire dinner.   I keep hearing  this odd growling noise but discovered it’s just my neighbour and his abundent phlem.

Well.  I guess it’s time to call it a night.  I haven’t even looked at my pictures yet.  Adue.

What a neat idea. Guess technology isn't all bad...
