Pitch a...WHAT?

I finally got around to reading the 3-Day walker handbook.

And my eyes are still saucers.

It turns out on this walk I have to...


WHAT? *hair standing on ends*

Pitch a tent? Bring a sleeping bag? SLEEP ON THE GROUND?

My poor teammates are probably not aware of this, but I've never been camping in my life. I don't even own a sleeping bag. Actually, I never have.

I've never had even an ounce of desire to sleep on the ground. There are bugs there, and worms in the ground, and oh ew. Yeah, granted I guess there's a tent floor and a sleeping bag blocking them from me, but oh ew.

And get this! There's no electricity, so you can't re-charge your cell phones! How primitive is this? Now honestly, I couldn't care less about the phone except for one the heck will I update Facebook?

Didn't Sue Lyn say the camps are really nice and they treat you well? Mmm-hmm.

*giggles* Oh, well, as long as one of my teammates knows how to pitch a tent, this is going to be even more of a fun new experience than I thought.


  1. Yeah, I'm freaking out over the "no blow dryer or curling iron" thought! And the tents do have bottoms to them. And I haven't had a sleeping bag since I was 12! Sue Lyn did say the food is awesome! I'll be wearing a hat and sunglasses so no one recognizes me - LOL!

  2. I'm jealous, this sounds like a lot of fun!
