Last night 3 of us headed to REI to pick up a couple of things. My husband was finally going to purchase his pack. He went with my suggestion of the Osprey Atmos 65L. It's the same pack my cousin, my mother and I have and we all love it and think it's super comfortable. The hubby agreed.
I had my husband try out the sleeping pad I'm going to order for him to make sure he thought it would work. Last night I also inflated my sleeping pad to make sure that it stays inflated and doesn't have any leaks. But one issue I didn't think of is that my pad is an extra long and it might not even fit in the tent (oh darn, I might have to get a new one).
Back to the shopping excursion, I also picked up a "Feminine Urination Device" called the Freshette. Basically, it's something that let's women pee standing up. I was unsure about getting one or if I needed one, but during our planning meeting, (and after 15 minutes of serious gut busting, tear producing laughter) both my cousin and friend said it's definitely something that is a must. It just makes things easier. The Freshette even has hose extensions for those women with hose envy. Can't beat that.
After getting the back and some socks and some other various things, we headed home. The peas were done dehydrating so I got some blueberries and apples going. I have a feeling the dehydrator will be going nonstop for the next week.
