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...
PITCH A TENT!!!
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 thing...how 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.
