It's Monday....

I'm exhausted, but I only have 4 days this week....but I have to pack. :grin: Yes, I am running amuck here - fun stuff!

I'm posting my to-do list here...if any of you intrepid campers want to look it over and tell me what I forgot, I'd appreciate it. *MY* idea of "roughing it" is a hotel without a pool.....this vacation? We're in a cabin. In the National Park. *2 HOURS* away from civilization. Primitive isn't the exact word *I'd* use for this, but it's close. :grin:

1) Laundry
2) Pack my clothes - enough for 7 days. Not sure when we'll find a laundrymat
3) Pack kids' clothes - this'll be fun, since they are at G'ma's all week.
4) Bake pancakes to take for breakfast (see above - nearest grocery is 2 hours away)
5) Bake muffins (see #4)
6) Bake cinnamon rolls (see #4)
7) Buy ice (night before/morning of, most likely)
8) Pack ice chest (morning of)
9) Buy lunch meats/sliced cheese/peanut butter/jelly
10) Bake loaf of bread (2?)
11) Pack blankets - at least 3 (colored, not white)
12) Pack towels (colored, not white)
14) Bath stuff
15) First aid stuff
16) Sunscreen/bug spray/anti-itch stuff
17) Dinner stuff (we have an oven at the cabin...not sure of microwave)
18) Wipe off camera cards
19) Charge all batteries
20) Pack card reader for laptop
21) Water bottles
22) Milk (will be bought when close to park (would rather haul it 2 hours instead of 10+)
23) cereal
24) Paper plates/bowls/plastic utensils
25) DVD player & movies (no TV reception at the cabin)
I'm sure I left a lot off...I have a bunch of food already in the freezer/staging area (trail mix, pretzels, granola bars, pop tarts (food of the gods! :grin:), m&ms, frozen sausages, popcorn chicken.....I just need a few more ideas. Breakfast stuff is pretty much taken care of, as is lunch (sandwich stuffs). Dinner......*that's* where I'm drawing blanks.)

The Jeep is going to be stuffed to the gills - so, no spinning wheel for me. There is a drop spindle and fiber in the glove box, and I'll have my 2 knitting projects with me....the kids are allowed 1 toy each. This is gonna be *fun*. :lol:
