Into the wilderness....

Leaving early bird tomorrow morning for my drive up to Sullivan County. Two nights in a Yurt middle of the Willowemoc Forest.  Already hit the farmers market and made some refreshingly *Mummy only*  purchases - ones that my littles would reject hands down ( tongue out).

Almost packed, and ready to embrace some solitude. A bit daunting, but sometimes l need a good jolt to reset the cogs, and appreciate all the things l take for granted at home..... if you know what l mean. The fluffies to keep me company of course.

Wish me luck...and see you on the other side

Packing list is as follows:

  • Warm clothes - at least 10 degrees cooler up there
  • Hiking boots/good socks 
  • Waterproof
  • Toiletries 
  • Lanterns/Headlights
  • Good Book/Mags (no cel)
  • Playing cards for a spot of patience or solitaire
  • Camera (of course)
  • Bug Spray, Benedryl (spray and oral) for both me and the dogs if we get stung 
  • My Epi pen!
  • Medical Kit

Fodder - Which is all Gluten/Dairy free:

  • I made Brownies, Pesto, and a good spicy caesar dressing (great flavor for the veggies and salad)
  • Plenty of precuts veggies for the grill or with Hummus ( Cauliflower, Haricots Verts, Baby Zucchini, baby carrots)
  • Hummus
