Backpacking

Originally published May 23, 2003

I haven't done this in a while. I dragged my dusty backpack out of the garage and started to think about what I need to take with me. Four packs of boil-in-bag rice, a pound of salt-cured country ham, six bagels, four Cup O' Soup envelopes, some mixed nuts and five Snickers bars. I'm also packing a frozen bar of butter for the fish I intend to catch.

I added a quart of bourbon in a canteen, some salt and pepper in a film case and twenty aspirin plus five Band-Aids in a plastic baggie. I believe that I am ready.

I'm going into the woods tomorrow.
