I am so excited to be preparing for this summer. I plan to take a two and a half month long camping trip where I can get away from everything and unwind. I love being in nature and this will give me the chance to immerse myself. I got the idea because this will be my last summer before graduating from college. I had thought about working but realized that this was the last opportunity I would have for a while to do something like this.
After all, most jobs don’t want people taking off that much time, whether it is paid vacation or not! My best friend and I were talking about our plans for the summer and reflecting on the fact that this was our last summer of freedom, at least until we make our first few millions. So, we thought about it and have planned the perfect way to spend our time.
So, our plan is to load up his parents minivan with supplies and spend our time in the great outdoors. There are a few different camping sites that we are going to hit and we decided to include a trip to the beach as well. After all, neither of us have a girlfriend right now and the beach has more than just pretty waves and seashells, if you know what I mean. When I am taking a break from my studies, I like to start looking at different aspects of what we are going to do. I have a list of things that we are going to need to take that keeps growing every time I look at it.
We are both going to need to read reviews and buy an outdoor watch that will be safe for us to use in any kind of weather. In that amount of time, we are sure to run into a bunch of rain and won’t be able to use our phones to track the time. Plus there are some that have compasses and other features that could reduce how much stuff we need to take with us. He found this really awesome tent online that he bought already and is storing in his old room at his parent’s home. It has three separate rooms in it so we can each have our own private room and a place that we can hang out together.
We are looking forward to meeting new people along the way and getting in some fishing. My mom is helping us figure out the best foods to take with us to begin with and we still have to figure out what we are going to do along the way, especially if we are not able to catch fish sometimes. And, even though we both like fish a lot, I don’t think either of us wants to eat it for every meal. We will just keep working on everything until we get it all together so we can have a fun summer in nature!
