Now this is going to be an ADVENTURE!

We are in the middle of planning out a fantastic adventure for September. I am so excited for it!

For a week this September, we are packing up the quads, trailer, kids, hunting and camping gear and heading way the heck back into the mountains for a hunting trip. We are going with friends of ours who also have two young children. They are taking their argo and trailer.

It is taking a lot of planning of what to bring. We were short a few items (extra sleeping bag and thermarest) but thankfully we have lots of good friends to borrow from.

We plan on heading quite a ways back and setting up our base camp. Then we will head out hunting from that point. With four adults, we can trade off who is going hunting and who is staying in camp with the kids. I know that I would love to go out with Matt and no kids!! And we will take the kids out on hunts too. They have been practicing their moose hunting skills all year and are raring to go! Seriously- they play moose hunt all the time. They try calling in moose, shooting them with wooden spoons or whatever else they have in hand, and have even tried cutting up our rocking moose with a butter knife. My kids are awesome.

We had the tent set up in the living room this weekend just to help with planning for sleeping gear. The boys were so excited and of course wanted us to leave it up!

This is going to be one heck of adventure and I cannot wait for the next three weeks to pass so we can head out. Now hopefully the monsoon season is over by then!!

Bring back a moose, and maybe this year I will progress from "labelling the packages of meat" to "putting meat in the grinder." Baby steps ^_^

Sounds like quite an adventure. Too bad Kendra will be teaching... I know she'd love to go on a hunt.
