So I got myself motivated. I told hubby that we were getting the skidoos out of storage and were going to have them ready to head up to the cottage. They were out in the country, so last Saturday we picked them up. This Saturday morning we headed to the cottage to check it out and do a trial run of the machines.
It was awesome! After a bit of a sputtery start we were in. The cottage was in great shape, and there should be no problems going up there for a weekend. We'll bring the pup in with us, I don't want to put him in doggy daycare if we don't have to and I can't wait to spend more winter time up there. It won't be completely roughing it, but there is no running water, no cleared roads, and woodstove for heat. I've started planning our supplies now, hopefully we'll only have a knapsack each for food and clothes. Next weekend is out, but I'm hoping for the weekend after, and the one after that, and so on.
The only real hitch was that I forgot my knitting for the ride up and back. Hmmm...one knapsack for food and clothes. Does that mean I get a second one for books and knitting, or do I spend the weekend hungry and freezing?
