If all goes as planned...

... my daughter and I will be heading up to Oklahoma this Saturday for a five-day backpacking trip along the Ouachita National Trail.

Of course if things do NOT go as planned (weather too cold, rainy, etc.), we'll be staying at home and crying that we're not on our five-day backpacking trip along the Ouachita National Trail.

Oh well.

In anticipation of us getting to go, we've been working out, hiking around the neighborhood, eating right, exercising, testing out our equipment -- you know, all the good things you're supposed to do before you go out into the "wilderness" where the squirrels and rabbits do play.

Where seldom is heard...

So, even if we don't get to go, we'll be in good-ish shape, and isn't that a good thing?

Well, I think it is.

Our last backpacking trip was to the Gila Wilderness in New Mexico. You can read about our backpacking adventures here (just a few, and I really didn't write all that much), or you can wait and read about our Ouachita Trail adventure when we get back.

If we go.

Wish us luck.
