Camping Gear, PDXKnitterati-style

I’m going camping with some friends this weekend. It’s a good thing they’re in charge of important things like cooking gear, because I don’t own any. We’ve been camping with most of the same people for 7 or 8 years. It started as a cub scout outing when Kid2 was younger; now it’s just a bunch of families having a good time.

It’s been cold and rainy here for weeks, so I’ve pretty much had my head in the sand about this trip, refusing to believe that it’s going to happen. But today, the sun came out, and it’s supposed to be nice for the weekend. Time to inventory the camping equipment:

Tents and tarps, camp chairs

Sleeping bags, air mattresses, extra blankets

Guitar, song books, music stand

Knitting, knitting, and knitting projects

Jewelry making supplies (more stitch markers!)

A new book to read. This arrived yesterday, and I’m looking forward to diving in. If I’m not playing the piano this weekend, at least I can read about it. A Romance on Three Legs: Glenn Gould’s Obsessive Quest for the Perfect Piano.


I think I’m set!

  1. Wow, you’re getting back into the piano thing whole hog! Glenn Gould? I once fell in lust with a young man, years ago, who entertained 5,000 people with Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini (Rachmaninoff).

    Our time was brief, even briefer because after we went out for french fries we sat on our dock for a few moments and it had been pelted by seagulls!

    A brief flirtation with a pianist. Keep up your blog, I like your writing. Dee
