The earlier test drive of the camping didn't go all too well. I blame the member in charge of morale, Starbark, which never stopped barking out of nervousness, until at about half past midnight I called dad to let her in, unleashed her and she ran home to raise alarm and wouldn't stop until dad came to see if I've been eaten by anything... like turtles or grasshopper or the like. Things she was worried about. That was that for the night, we drove back to town and tried to repeat the process at noon the next day.... Didn't really go much better. Everyone says to just leave the overly-protective mutt with the parents and take a plushie version instead, but I want to see if this is something she simply needs to get used to - sleeping outdoors...
I take off at about 5 tomorrow morning. For a couple of days. Then I'll be back to wrap up some work and move on again.
