Departing– Friday morning at 9am. That means I would like for most kids to miss school if they can. It makes everything so much easier


Gear List– I will supply that on Tuesday, however always prepare for it to be cold and wet.




What can you Bring? — Water, fire wood, are always helpful.


On Monday I will be driving up to start to set up camp.
