The Fun Starts Now! Episode 4

Once the cooler is packed I am ready to go. Yesterday I set up the tent in the front yard with the help of various neighbors who were passing by (mostly taking their dogs for a walk). 



One said, "Let me send my husband over. He's good at this stuff." So, I had a live tutor instead of a digital one.

His name is Tom, and he brought me a tarp for under the tent and told me the key was to make sure the under tarp was smaller than the tent floor to keep it from attracting rain, and to fold the tarp's edges under so that moisture would roll off the sides and away from the tent floor. He made me fill and actually fire up my Coleman stove, a nifty little one burner appliance that I trust will keep up me supplied with hot coffee and soup. He instructed me on where, especially, to apply the seam sealer to the tent, showed me a clever door at the base of the tent that lets in an electric cord if I have a site with electricity, approved my hatchet, and reminded me to take an extension cord. He said he used to be a Boy Scout Leader. My gain.

It's a beautiful day, there are no predictions of rain. Here I go!


"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV
