Hi! It’s me! Lily!!!
So much stuff to do, and I have to deal with school too!!! Aww!!! Dave gave me a present today, he bought one of those really honking big lithium batteries that can keep my phone and other stuff charged. I mean it’s massive – apparently it can charge a phone for like fifteen times, and it has a solar panel too. So everyone gets to charge their phone. Everyone’s happy!!! I guess we’ll see if we get reception, but at least it’s one less thing to worry about. We’ll put the solar panel out during the day and charge our butts off at night.
It cost a pretty penny too, I guess Dave’s a little worried.
He wanted to buy us a starlink too, but it looks like they’re backordered, so we’ll just have to make do.
Dave actually took us shopping, and he had a really big list of stuff we hadn’t even thought of. Liz’s parents are really grateful that he took charge, they’ve never been camping before, and Dave’s pretty thorough at this kind of stuff. We almost forgot a can opener!!! Aww!!!
I’m bringing my tablet too. I hope I can make good use of it, but if not, I can at least play games, I guess. Dave told me that I should only use it when I need, the whole point of camping is to go hiking and spend time with people, everything will be here when we get back. Dangit, he’s always right.
He also suggested we bring along some medical stuff. You know, just in case. He’s kind of being a worrywart but he helped make up a medical bag. He got some dehydrated chicken soup packets. Guy thinks of everything. We have common medicines, like aspiriin, cold medicine, etc. Hope we don’t need it.
Anyway… just a couple of days to go! I’m excited!
