A couple of random things:
I had such a wonderful time at the dog park last night; I got to meet up with a couple of my oldest friends (Rizzo, Buddy, and Ricco) and run around insanely! It was so much fun, it's just sad that the evenings are coming to a close earlier now...sniff...it was practically dark at 7:45! Aw, the perils of Fall!
I've been loving reading all the blog posts and tweets about all my friends' experiences at BarkWorld.. It looks like such an pawesome conference! I can't wait to hear more!
FYI, on Saturday, Petco is going to be hosting a Summer Snow Day at 8 different stores across the country. The stores are going to be giving away free puppy ice cream, Kong demonstrations, food samples, and will be having training demonstrations...along with...a temporary snow park for your pup!! OMD...I can't wait!! I'm so happy, one of the stores is only about 30 minutes north, so Domeek, Pippi, and me are going to go and have some fun in the snow! :-D Make sure to see if there's a store near you participating!
Ok, onto the fun stuff...Domeek and I have finally decided that we are going to start camping! I know, most of you will be saying, but you missed the summer! Pft, no worries, I can't stand the heat - Fall is a waaaay better season anyways! ;-)
So, because we don't have any equipment and no one in our family actually camps, we have a couple of questions for all you camping fans!! :-D
First off - Tents! We'd love to hear what tents and brands you've all been happy with! Currently we're looking at the Coleman Sundome and the Suisse Sport Yosemite...both are in our budget, have pretty good reviews, are the right size/weight, and are readily available. Buuuut, if any of you have had issues or anything with them, we'd love to hear!
Secondly - Camp Stoves! Ok, Domeek has absolutely No experience with these things! So we are running around blind! :-/ Hm! I like food...does anyone have any suggestions that would stop me from starving?! Should we use a single burner, double burner, match start...? The longest time we'd be camping would be a long weekend! Eeek!!
|Um, Noms!!! ;-)|
Thirdly - Tips/Suggestions/Randomness/Things You Wish You Knew when it comes to beginning camping (in general)!
|Muahaha, yes, I would sacrifice a child over moi! ;-)|
Thanks so much in advance guys!! :-D We're looking forward to going, enjoying the great outdoors, hiking, and being one with nature soon!!!
