Well, here I am sitting 400 miles closer to my final destination. 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. Then I'll be on my way north away from computers, cell phones, TV, and all the modern conveniences known to modern man.
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.
So, I will leave the forums to my capable friends here and wish luck to those who are waiting for that credit card hit or email telling them about the adventure that they will embark on this coming fall. As for me I'll have to check everything when I get home.
I learned this the hard way last year. If you're hunting in an area with lots of bear activity, it's a great idea to stash your food and water up in a tree. I like to wrap everything in a tarp and tie it between two trees. Don't just tie it up in one tree but tie it in between two trees at least 15 feet in the air. I thought I had my backpacking camp's food supply stashed pretty well last year. I returned to camp during the first weekend of archery to find all my food destroyed. Make sure...
