Horse camping with teenage boys...

Tomorrow I pack up bicycles, camping gear and enough food for 8 people for 4 days, 4 horses, 7 saddles (some boys like to ride western and some english), hay, supplements, 6 teenage boys, and a shovel in case I have to bury somebody.

Baby Jasper is going on his first overnight camping trip and he is sooooooooooo excited.


We're going to Farragut State Park which is on Lake Pend Oreille in Idaho. There are miles and miles of trails to ride on, corrals for the horses, and a huge camping area for the boys next to no one. This is my 4th year making this trip with Anke (another staff member) and we're both pretty excited to go. We've got the basic routine down. Our goal is to keep the boys active all day so they're completely exhausted at night. They're either riding horses or bikes, or swimming, or playing ball, or...

This weekend I have been fighting off the flu. I have taken every natural immune boosting supplement known to mankind. I can still feel it in my skin, but it's not full-blown yet. Wish me luck.

Pictures when we get back, of the horses and the park anyway!

Good luck with your trip - may a good time be had by all, and may the boys be exhausted and you not!

Sounds like a great trip - well, minus the teenage boys part! Hope you have a fantastic time and the flu stays far, far away.
