Matt Sent Me Camping Pictures + Planning

Matt left early this morning for Cash(sp?) Course training in Kansas City. He’ll be back next week Friday, leaving me with one empty weekend, the rest of this week, and a few days off next week to fill. Yesterday, however, he sent me the handful of phone pictures I insisted he take last week before I got up north. I know I was wondering exactly what he got up to. Matt’s recount of the three days before I got there was brief at best, so the pictures he took himself helped fill it in, from Matt’s perspective.

Probably right before he unhitched the camper.

I heard at least one night was made a bit more colorful by one of his old high school buddies.

And this stuff. Plus some Captain and Miller Light.

Now the story of what Matt did without supervision is rounded out.  I’m wondering what I’ll get up to with the full weekend to myself. Of course, the weekend he comes back, I work Friday and Saturday. I’m taking the VW in for new tires + oil change today, so while it’s over at the tire place, I may stroll down the bike path near the house with the dogs, and see if the blackberries along it are ripe yet. If they are, I’m donning long sleeves and an entire can of bug spray to go berry picking tomorrow out at Sunny Slope. I want at least a pie, and maybe even a gallon carboy of blackberry wine. With all the rain we’ve had this year, I’m hoping the berry bushes are heavy. That’s if I’m not too late entirely. Besides that, I may try to bank fish somewhere. Maybe beg acquaintances with boats to take me with them. Hopefully I’ll find something to do.

 

Update: On that walk, I saw an older gentleman out picking berries in the ditch. I chatted with him and he said about half of them were ripe. That means berry picking this weekend is a go!
