So, every so often I will buy something and throw it in the back of the car. Today, I cleaned out the back of the car and found the following items. I'd like to say most of this was from last week's camping trip with The Boy, but to be honest, almost none of it was:
4 packets of Top Ramen
Box of tea
2 boxes of Cliff bars.
16 (sixteen) freeze-dried entrees.
several gallons of bottled water
Various fire starters
Of course, that doesn't include the tool kit, 1st aid kit, fire extinguisher, yadda yadda yadda.
I think I need a new obsession. Or, I just need to go camping more and use most of that shit up.

The crowds were notably lighter than last year, and fewer homes were decorated. It's Bush's fault. Probably. Maybe.
Election Day: Was also the nine-year anniversary. The Wife, The Boy and I all went for sushi at Kona Grill, the very same place I saw OJ hanging out in September. Being old, and therefore no longer as punk rock as I one was, I paid for the sushi I ordered.
The next several days were spent smugly watching the editors of the R-J apparently shit their pants in panic. HA HA,
Got all set to go to court and order an MSJ I actually thought was winnable. Other guys must have felt the same way. The case settled. Actually, the Motions in Limine might have done it. Whatever.
Spent quality time at Rincon de Buenos Aires. If you like to eat dead animals and things made therefrom and you haven't gone, you are doing yourself a serious disservice.
Had to disclose experts in four cases in last two days...lots of regressing to my chemist roots and geeking out in an inorganic fashion.
Best of all, The Boy and I went camping for the first time (for him) Saturday on Mt. Charleston. He freakin' dug it. Just the same, the DVD player for nighttime movie in the tent was probably the highlight in his eyes. He wants to go back...and was a bit irate we weren't up there in the snow. What a trooper...
