Just got back from our mini vacay...actually, it was more work that relaxing, but still fun for us. Several of our friends from So Cal and Nor Cal plus my dad joined us at Yosemite for some camping and hiking. The plan was to car camp in Upper Pines Friday night and hike up to Half Dome Saturday, and leave Sunday morning. Only 4 of us (out of 11) made it up Half Dome: me, FI, Dad, and a Nor Cal friend. It was tough, but we made it. It took us about 13 hours to hike the 17.6 miles roundtrip.
Two years ago, FI and I went up to Yosemite with other friends and backpacked for the first time. We hiked the same trail we did this time except last time, we were carrying between 40-50 pounds on our backs. Going up this time with only water was really hard; I can't believe we were able to do what we did last time.
Anyways...so now we're back, and I've been itching to shop. But I'm watching myself because we do have this huge wedding to finance. So I'll share some deals I came across: today only though!
