Less than 12 hours before I leave for the desert. Possibly less than 10.

I asked [personal profile] gridlore earlier tonight if I always get this anxious before I leave. His "Oh, HELL yeah" was oddly reassuring in a frustrating kind of way. To me, there feels like there are whole new levels to the panic this year, though. It's been two years since I actually had to set and strike a tent; I actually wound up downgrading from the 12x16 cabin tent I wanted to have (which was its own saga this year - the rainfly didn't get packed in with the tent the last time I used it, and I missed picking it up when I originally got my gear out from [personal profile] murphymom's basement) in favor of the 9x9 dome I know I can deal with on my own.

Or at least I used to. I've lost a fair amount of mobility in the past two years, and I don't know if I can still do it.

On top of that, I've got bonus First Day Of School angst, because I'm in a new camp this year, and while the mayors love me, I really don't know anyone else in the group that well, and I'm worried that I won't fit in well. (All the more reason to panic about whether or not I can put my own tent together, because I don't want to look completely helpless.)

But there's really nothing left for it now but to go.

I think I know other people who are going. Which camp will you be in?

I hope you have a wonderful time and that all the worrying was for naught.

Love you.
