Tonight I sit here on the eve of my descent into the wild. Me and the earth. One on one. Mano y mano. I am taking on nature. Well camping. In a meadow...So maybe not as extreme as I have perceived it to be...I am going with a lovely group to Pisgah. Not positive where it is, but it's somewhere near Brevard, NC. I have just finished packing the bare necessities: guitar, 2 books, waters, beers, multiple headlamps, air mattress, a disco ball to hang in my tent (who doesn't love a good disco ball?), more beers, diet mtn dews, Crystal Lights, granola, a knife,camera, maybe a people magazine crossword puzzle book, nuts and berries, multiple chacos, peanut butter, 2 pillows, my fish sheet, a spork, about 20,000 tshirts and most importantly Zebra Cakes. You never know when you may need a zebra cake and they were only a buck at Wally World. Let me pause- I am now shopping for groceries at Wally World. Holy Moly its so much cheaper. And they even sell beer at Walmart. Crazy. Things have definitely come full circle people. I say this, but my heart is really still a Publix. Moving on. I am actually a bit nervous about this weekend. I mean I don't have a whole lot of camping experience logged in the books. Once in Logan's backyard and once a few years ago in table rock. I didn't make it through the night at Logan's and I had no choice, but to stay at Table Rock. So this is my genuine go at it. I want to like it so bad. I am also going to give hiking a try. Hopefully since I am going with a happy attitude, the tides will turn and I will have a new love.....Wait. Will there be bears? Stink. Ok now I am a tid bit scared...Is it bad to take a taser? Ugh. So with that- I bid you farewell. I Sarah Sass/Betty Bridesmaid am immersing myself in nature. Hopefully I will get a good story out of it. Don't miss me too too much.
Over and Out,
(Doesn't that sound like a super cool wilderness name...)
