It’s 2:29 pm.  We were supposed to leave at 1:00, but we are still wrapping up odds and ends.  Actually, TBear and I are done (knock on wood) and are here at my parents’ house waiting on my mom – we’re caravaning with her because we’re towing the supply trailer (stuff for 42 people takes a lot of space) and she’s towing the pop-up.  My dad, sisters, aunt, and uncle left a couple of hours ago so they’d get up to the campground before dark (it’s an eight to nine hour drive, depending on stops).  We’re just… waiting.

LOL – interesting commentary just now from my grandmother, who is watching my parents’ small dogs (big ones are boarded) and Woobie while we’re gone – referring to my aunt and uncle’s car, she said, “I don’t know how they can see out of that thing – you should’ve seen it.  You couldn’t have fit a toothpick in there, they had it stuffed so full.  There was almost stuff coming out the windows.” 

At any rate, I’m writing a quick blog while I have the time – not sure if you’ll hear from me for the next ten days or so, but I think you can see (or maybe just hear) live feeds of the CreationFest stuff once it starts (we get there and set up camp on Tuesday, but the concerts don’t start until late afternoon Wednesday).  Check it out – just head to and see what there is to see.  Maybe they’ll have some live feed info next week.

Oh, and just a heads up if you’re ever doing any camping somewhere hot – Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint Castile Soap (liquid) is the bomb.  I love this stuff – we’ve used it camping ever since I was a kid.  For one thing, it’s easy on the environment – biodegradable, no funky stuff, etc – you can use it without worrying about polluting local water supplies or streams, even if you wash directly in a lake or stream.  For another, if you’re hot and sticky and sweaty and a bit cross, lathering yourself in lovely super-concentrated peppermint soap is just an absolutely spiritual experience – you literally feel it cooling your skin, and you keep tingling even after you towel off.  Plus the smell doesn’t attract lots of insects, unlike floral scented stuff (bad idea when you’re camping).

Okay, well, I think we’re off!  Bye-de-bye – catch you in a few, Xanga!
