We are packing the trailer TOMORROW for the  Peterloon campout this weekend.  Remember to bring all your personal gear - Sleeping bag, sleeping pad and, a pillow and anything else you want to put in the trailer. Mr. Henderson is driving up early to drop off our gear, so we need to get things buttoned up. You can bring a small daypack when we meet on Friday, but if it's not in the trailer tomorrow, it's not in the trailer.
