5 a.m.

We're on Pit Stop 1. That's the one that leaves camp at 5 a.m. Must remember to bring earplugs to drown out the camp karaoke so we can go to bed at 7.

Last time I ditched camp after night 1 to stay at Mom's house. But signing up for Crew is signing up for camping. This year I will bring a pad to put under my sleeping bag. Hubby was appalled in 2006 that I went without one of those. Apparently it's key not just for comfort, but also for warmth.

It's only June but I'm 30% of the way to my fundraising goal! Thanks, everyone! (Do you like how the thermometer is pink this year?)

3 Day 2008

As most everyone who looks at this blog has already heard, my mom and I will be participating as Crew members on the Atlanta 3 Day this year. We will be on a pit stop team, which was our first choice. The pit stops are places where the walkers fill their water and Gatorade bottles, use the bathroom, get a snack, and do some first-aid (usually blister care). Or, it could be lunch. We don't know yet which pit stop team we'll be on.

Here's a pit stop picture from 2006:
