A Weighty Issue

When Em had suggested backcountry camping I immediately said, “Yes! Awesome idea!” Images came to mind of starlit nights, sleeping in warm down sleeping bags, and cooking delicious meals (food always tastes better when you’re camping). I had forgotten the carrying the heavy pack part. The very, very heavy pack. The ridiculously, what-could-we-have-left-behind-to-make-our-packs-even-ounces-lighter, heavy packs. I’ve never felt such relief as the end of the first day. Why were we doing this again? Oh, yes, to relax.
