I was forced to come home a day early as my stormproof lighter leaked Friday night and was empty by Saturday morning. I was able to make due with matches until I ran out. For every 10 I tried to light, only 1 would actually ignite. Oh…and I ran out of toilet paper. Always make sure you bring MORE than enough—not JUST enough. Still had a blast though.

The mountains are calling and I am gone.

Heading out on my first solo backpacking trip in the Angeles National Forest. See ya Monday, Tumblr!
