Preparations for the Westbound excursion have begun. First there’s a bit of breakfast.
And there’s a cat on my computer desk but I have no time for that.
Alright, let’s remove the sleeping bags from their slumbering location of cardboard packaging. Oh no… my new knife seems to have gotten a bit too excited and has put a sizable whole in both the sleeping bag sac and the actual sleeping bag. Oh bother.
Okay, time to set up the tent! Had to rearrange the living room a bit but it fits just fine. Doing it with one person was tough but possible.
This was followed by about 5 hours of hectic planning by Dani and I (not pictured) into the wee hours of the night, trying to scramble a completely new plan from our original destination of Utah, to the new luxurious and exotic location of “Southern California”
