Melanie's Monday - Road Trip Prep!

It's Monday, so that means it's time for Melanie's Monday! Yay! And for those of you who don't know me, my name is Melanie Ryder, and I'm one of the characters from a couple of Alyssa Montgomery's E-Books!

So, this week has been super busy since I've been preparing for my...

Road trip!

And I'd have to say that I'm pretty excited. It's going to be awesome! This could be one of the last times all of us get to hang out for a long time, what with Cal and Paul leaving for college in the fall. So it's definitely going to rock.

So I've spent the last week with Kassie making sure that all our reservations are okay, and then going shopping for everything that I need. Which is quite a lot (something that I didn't expect until I actually started going shopping!) I had to buy a new sleeping bag for the nights that we're camping along with roughly a million batteries for my camera and flashlight. There is no way that I'm going to be running out of batteries. (Especially when I'm in the dark. My flashlight is not dying on me then!)

And then I had to make sure that I had enough warm clothes for when we're in the mountains. Just like I'm not going without a flashlight in the dark, I'm not going to turn into a popsicle at night because I didn't pack clothes that will keep me warm at night. And I know that however warm my sleeping bag is that it's just not going to cut it.

So now I'm totally psyched for this trip! We'll be gone for ten days, which means that you're going to be getting a special post next Monday from on the trip! (Or somewhere around there. We're not bringing a laptop, so it's either post from an internet cafe, or wait until the end of the trip. I guess we'll just wait and see what happens!

Well, that's it for now! I'll be leaving tomorrow for my trip! Yipee!

Melanie Ryder is a character that can be found in Alyssa Montgomery's short stories, Where Are You? and 9:53 P.M. (from the Heat of the Moment Anthology).
