Yeah, I'm at our picnic bench at a Thousand Trails preserve in Chehalis.  I have both Marshall and my cousin's boy, Aiden.  Two of the most talkative boys I've ever met.  They have one tent, I have another.  We got here rather late last night and it was pretty dark by the time we got both tents set up.

Sleep was very difficult for me last night.  It was hard for all of us to settle down considering we got in so late.  The boys were silent by midnight.  I read until 1am.  I layed there with my eyes closed for more or less 2 hours.  Tossing and turning.  It wasn't discomfort.  I'm pretty smitten with my sleeping bag and pad.  Somehow sleep continued to elude me.  Then of course the boys were up around 5:30, therefore so was I.  I'm going to try to nap for now.  See how I fare trying to take on the day once again a bit later.  I know the whole technology thing is so cheating when it comes to camping but I really like seeking an outlet.  So, here I am.  And by all means, it's not like I'll be filling my whole day playing with my various devices. Two days until we head back home for the day, then back at it for another two nights.

Okay, nap time.

Nook Geekery

Trying to update my Nook Color to run the latest Cyanogenmod stable build.  The fun thing is that when you do this, you have to format your micro SD.  Well, that sounds great in theory but it tries to tell you you have less than 1GB of space no matter how big your card is.  Mine is 16GB.  But I found THIS handy dandy program that does it all without any hard work.  Click HERE for the basic instructions.

So here I am, redoing it all.  We'll see how it goes :D
