We’re leaving Wednesday for a trip upcountry. I’m inviting you to help me pack. I’ll be updating today and tomorrow.

As I preparing for two weeks in the Bush, I’m carefully considering what I need.

I’m also helping a volunteer team from Dry Creek get ready to come over here.  This post is instructional for them, but we’ll gladly let you look in. Ideas are always welcome.
