I may still do it

Originally published March 14, 2004

I started to sleep in the woods tonight. I went and rigged my hammock and a tarp over it today and gathered a bunch of firewood. The weather is perfect for camping and I've got woods right in my back yard. I don't like what's happening in my life right now and I think a night in the woods might do me good.

But I believe that I'll wait until after Monday. If I get to see my son again, he and Jack would consider the three of us sleeping in the woods a grand adventure. I've got a two-man pup-tent I could raise for them and they both have sleeping bags. We'll cook hot dogs and I'll tell ghost stories while we feed the campfire.

But I'm just liable to go sleep out there tonight. Just for the hell of it.
