      Nope, I'm not backpacking yet. I'm planning on taking the 0.9 mile
      route. I'll get my stuff together today and drive up tomorrow.
      Speaking of my stuff, this kind of trip is not quite backpacking and
      not quite car camping, but it's probably closer to car camping. Last
      year I took the 0.9 mile route and carried my backpacking stuff. When
      I backpack I don't carry warm clothes to stand around in. I'm usually
      hiking or in my hammock with my sleeping bag for warmth and only have
      to stay warm when I'm inactive for the time it takes to cook and eat
      dinner. Last year I got a little chilly like that standing around
      socializing so I think I may carry my bigger pack and some warmer
      clothes this time... maybe some boots as well. Anyhow, I'll see
      everybody tomorrow.
