what an adventurous day. this morning around five or six i woke up to a freezing body, the cold had really set in. i was covered up completely but still being motionless the would just rise and since we had no heater or fire me and my friend were cold. finally after trying to warm up i hoped out of the tent and started the fire. we were prohibited to start one because of the burn banned that was in effect but i had to make some breakfast. after starting up the fire i woke my friend to come join me to get closer to the fire so he wouldn’t be cold, moments later after joining me we were both warm enough to move around.

we started cooking. we ate and then began talking of what was next. after a little while we bagan to pack up and turn off the fire. there were too many coals and the rock pit we rocks we had used to make the pit were too hot and we had just turned it out and left it there for the next patron to acquire our site to use it.

after everything was packed up and consolidated we headed back with our walking sticks. the sticks helped out from going forward or backwards on the steep hills. after that hike with more stuff then we came in with we arrived to the car about thirty minutes later. we saw a lot of people heading the opposite direction and were heading up the mountain. i wished i could have stayed for longer but couldn’t. future plans of a trip are around the corner. this time we know what to bring. there is also planning of possibly bringing others with us next time.

on our drive back i was able to take more pictures. some were slightly blurry but i did what i could on my phone. after getting home i was able to relax. after letting my parents know i got home safely i was told to change and get ready to go to my little cousins birthday party. i really didn’t want to go from being exhausted. i went. had some food and just wanted to get back home, was dropped off and turned on the television. a movie came on that i have never seen before and i watched it. it was funny and good mind you it was an animated movie. most animations are funny to me either way. lol.

it is late already and i am super tired. got some homework to do tomorrow and a few paper and notes to do. i hope all had a great day. good night and sweet dreams.

today was the day of the camping trip, me and my best friend took off after class was cancelled. work already knew I would be heading out of town. it was about a two to three hour drive the get there. we saw a lot of lush vegetation and a lot of different colored trees and plants. when we arrived we stretched and headed inside and filled out what needed to be filled. we were given a map and the we were expecting to drive up to the camp site when we discovered that we couldn’t drive anymore and had to park and hike up the rocks to the camp site. we parked and popped the trunk.
we grabbed what we needed, we just grabbed the essential for a campsite. i had recently acquired my tent from my brother, it is huge, it can hold twelve people comfortably and maybe more for a crammed bunch. we realized that it was going to be a bit of a hike. it was a three mile hike with about fifty pounds or more of extra weight for each of us.
we talked all the way up the hike about work mostly and the stuff that’s been going on since last seeing each other. we finally arrived and were low on water supply. these camp site were really secluded and nothing like the ones I had gone too a very long time ago. these didn’t have the special emanates of water or shower or even water stations near by. they’re were way different, some of the sites were primitive with nothing around, there we also others that had water and electricity hook-ups and the others were you could have brought a trailer or recreational vehicle to park.
we set up camp and after also being low on food we decided to head back through the hills and to the car to leave the park and head to the gas station about twenty minutes before the site. we got quick things to eat and two gallons of water and paid and returned to the camp site because we had left the tent set up and our belongings. we parked. we tried to pack what we had and consolidated what we could. we hiked up the mountain to returned back to the tent. on arrival there was still no one around. we did see a few people walking back to the parking lot but no one going any father along the trail.
for dinner i opened a can of ranch style beans and ate some cheetos an chased it down with water that we had brought. we got to open up way more then we usually have since we didn’t have any electronics to mess with; it was just us and nature. our conversations got pretty deep. after all that I am here in my sleeping bag writing this out. it was crazy and one of the most adventurous thing I have done in a while. I think it is time for me to get some shut eye. I hope y’all had a great day. good night and sweet dreams.
