Hey all. I am really excited. Kevin and I are going to a YMCA camp, John Island, this weekend, where we usually go to Family Camp most years with several of our friends. Not for a vacation though, it is a volounteer weekend, they are replacing the old cabins, the shower block, kitchen and putting in new composting toilets gradually year by year, long overdue I may add. The camp was opened in 1954 (the year I was born). Kevin will do some woodwork as he is good at that. I will probably just wield a paintbrush or help clean up the mess etc. It is free board and lodging, just the cost of the gas, it's a six and a half hour drive up north, near a small town called Spanish. Then a drive for 15 minutes past an indian reservation, houses though. It will be quite a challenge for me as when we get off the boat it is a mile and a half walk over very un-even ground until we get to the camp which is then all walking in sand. We will stay in a cabin with bunk beds, so I will have to take my body pillow with me and all my meds, ice pack and heat pad. It will be cold too still, so warm clothes and bedding. I sorted most of the stuff out today. Just need to get the cool box sorted out for the booze (no daquaris or pina coladas for me this time though 'cos of my pills.) It will be hard work, but the food is always good and we will hopefully sit around the campfire in the evenings and those who can will jam. Kev will take his guitar. It is so beatiful there. Looks like Cuba at the beach part. There is a wonderful vista at night too as it is pitch dark when they switch the generator off. Oh, I must remember to buy some glow sticks, can't take the total darkness as I am closterphobic. It is also the place where I fell on rocks and broke and disclocated my wrist a couple of years ago. That was also a challenge as when Kevin had managed to get me up from the rock pool, after he had found some driftwood and splinted my wrist with it and his sock and supported it with my shirt, we then had more rocks to climb, another 20 minute walk to the dining hall. I then took 800 mgms of Advil and was helped into the trailer of a very old tractor on a garden chair. Then the ride up the uneven road to the dock, A fifteen minute trip in the boat. Then a bumpy ride up an unmade rocky road to get our car which was pasked 20 minutes away. Then another 30 minute drive to the hospital. Oh, sorry, I have been rambling. Kevin's away on a business trip tonight so no one to talk to. Better go to bed now anyway it's gone 2am again!! Night all.
