I am sitting at my sisters house going over everything that I have and what I may need to pick up since there is a Cabela's just a few miles away and I will have tomorrow (Wednesday) to take care of any loose ends.

I have checked the weather for the last time and it looks like some rain and some sun but you never know when you get out into the sticks. It looks like the ride into the camp will be a wet one but it should dry out after that. I'm glad that I have good rain gear.
