The River Wild

I hope Kevin Bacon doesn't show up.


Sorry for the last-minute-ness of this blog post . . . I've been busy getting ready for my white water raftin' trip this weekend!  I'll be heading out of this great state and taking a roadtrip to southern Pennsylvania to Laurel Highlands River Tours for my first ever raftin' experience.
(Yes, I have to call it "raftin'". Be glad I'm not capitalizing it like I have been recently.) 
Preparing for a road trip of this caliber takes a lot of planning. Not only are we raftin', but we're camping too. I guess I never really thought about how difficult it is to determine what to bring and what to buy when you'll be in the middle of nowhere without a CVS on the corner.
I went shopping for the trip after my day at Michigan First, and I'm proud to say that I used coupons, bought store-brand food, and used my store rewards card. I saved over $20 on the hot dogs, paper products and sunblock I purchased. I just wanted to scream from the rooftops, "I'M LEARNING!" 
So, Young & Free people, what is the one thing you won't leave the house without when embarking on a camping trip? I want to make sure I don't forget anything essential!

Stay awesome,
