Granola and Fire Starters Before Breakfast
It was another early morning jam session making fire starters and granola for the Girl Scout camping trip. All the while I worked I kept thinking, "The scouts should be doing this." And it's true. They should have been, but... they weren't.
On the surface going camping seems like an easy task. Pack a few clothes. Set a menu. Gather a few games and activities. Viola -- camping. But no...
Camping is gathering an entire kitchen of supplies. (Don't forget the three dish pans, can opener and hot pads. Not to mention the dish clothes and dish towels.) Doing the food shopping. Making sure there is fuel for cooking, wood or otherwise. Don't forget the first aid kit, and bug spray.
I am a bit stressed. Can you tell?
