Bonnaroo Bound!

We're prepped and ready to go. I'd like to say that I had the pack list completed weeks ago and that we're launching with the precision of a Swiss watch (or something else precise that's actually relevant today), but ... here we are. A late night grocery run gets us the essentials. A borrowed camper (thanks, Becky!) means we can just toss things in the van and look forward to a tidier living space for the next four days.

Things I'm glad I remembered? Rain gear, bug spray, hat/bandana combo, sunscreen, tools. Things we'll get on the way? Ice, batteries, box o' wine, giant mylar balloon so we can find the camper. Special splurge item I'm geeked out about? Solar-powered phone charger. Oh yeah.
