Becoming an Outdoors Woman

I’m the first to admit that I’m not big on camping. I don’t like being uncomfortable in general, and sleeping in a cold, damp cabin with spiders is the definition of uncomfortable. Still, last weekend rocked. I learned about firearm safety (and have may have finally internalized the difference between gauge and caliber), shot at flying clay targets, and learned the basics of taking a decent picture. I toasted a Twinkie, met people from Chicago, and ate a whole lot of fried fish. I didn’t shower or have cell service for three days and I didn’t even care. I met an 85-year-old whose activities included ziplining and rappelling. I’m already looking forward to next year. And trying to figure out how to incorporate trap shooting in my next book.

It’s summer, and the traveling season has begun. Last week I went camping with the family at Mammoth Cave. By the time I remembered I was supposed to post something here, I was in a hole in the ground. There’s very bad cell reception in a hole. In the ground.

This week though, I remembered! While I’m in the middle of packing for another trip, to exciting Indiana. So yeah, I’m pretty useless this time too. I will say though, that long car trips are useful for plotting out books. Though after 3 am, the plotlines start to get awful strange.

Not 80’s hair strange, but strange.
