Moab!

This weekend Scott is riding in the Moab Century. For those who don't know, a century in biking terms is 100 miles. Yes, that's right, Scott will be biking 100 miles. The kicker? The first 30 miles are all uphill! I'm trying not to think too much about him riding that far in the 90 degree heat. We all remember how that 90 degree ride turned out for me...right? Fortunately, Scott is built to be a biker. He's tall, lean and just really a natural on his bike. God Speed my darling husband, God speed!

We're also CAMPING while in Moab. Scott says "Kate's more of an indoor gal" and he's right. A month ago when I was hiking in Red Rocks, seeing that deer 10 feet from me I was thinking "THIS IS TOO MUCH NATURE!" I'm hoping that this will be a good camping experience. We're borrowing nearly every piece of camping equipment aside from our camping chairs which are like the Cadillac of camping chairs, trust!

Any camping tips you've got...let's GO, send 'em over!

Here's my list of things we need:

Tent
Tools to put the tent together?
Sleeping bags
pillows
sleeping pads
cooler with drinks and breakfast stuff
toiletries
bike clothes
hats
portable alarm clock
flash light-head lamps
matches
paper
sunscreen
Cadillac camping chairs
bikes
camera
directions to Moab KOA
Phone #'s
trash bags
toilet paper
shower flip flops
smores stuff
clorox wipes (duh)
baby wipes

Am I missing anything major...like my mind?
We leave tomorrow, wish Scott luck!

  1. Moab is such a beautiful area. Maybe he'll be distracted by the scenery and the ride will go by really fast.

  2. I took yesterday off, so apparently I can't wish you good luck before you go.

    Instead, you'll have to tell me all about it when you get back! :)
