Letting the cat out of the bag

Well, I'm finally all ready to go camping with the Venturers tonight. After I got all the crew gear assembled, I got around to packing for myself. We're not backpacking, so I just grabbed ye olde blue duffel to put my stuff in. Hera immediately crawled inside and curled up. She liked it.

Take me along if you love-a me Take me along if you love-a me
Hera wants to go camping, too, it seems.

We are staying tonight at Lynnville Park and attending a meeting of the Evansville Astronomical Society at their observatory. We'll hear a talk on measuring distances in space, then get a private tour of the observatory.

Tomorrow, we're touring Angel Mounds, a prehistoric Mound-builder Indian site along the Ohio River. For supper, we're eating at Shyler's Barbecue before heading home.

It's not supposed to get toooo cold. We should do fine. I'm bringing my little camp perker, so there'll be coffee in the morning, regardless. Oughta be fun.

Rougher! Tougher! Buffer!
