minutia press.
Like this one time, at _________ camp, ....

I don't usually get ready for a trip more than a few hours before I have to be at the airport. I've gotten pretty good about provisioning, and it's easy to throw some things in a suitcase.

But I spent a few hours today, two days before my departure, preparing for my upcoming to......camp.

In observance of a significant birthday (I'll disclose the number over a beer if you are interested), I am treating myself to 4 days of ice hockey camp.

While I really, really like ice hockey, I'm not very good at it, and camp is my attempt to get better and prove to myself that getting old doesn't have to be boring.

So I'll fly and then drive to Lake Placid to create my own version of Miracle. I will post about my experiences if and when I return.
