Happy Friday! This weekend, a few friends of Sam and I planned our very first Fall camping trip together (another check on my Fall to-list) to explore a 53-foot waterfall and beautiful park about 4 hours away from home. However, due to conflicting schedules, increased regulations of the state park, and other unfortunate factors, we've decided not to make the trek and instead will be having a spooky "mock camping trip" in one of our friend's enormous backyards in Ellicott City.
The plan is to set up camp in our tents, have a Halloween movie screening outside, play a ton of games (like Cards Against Humanity), huddle around a bonfire, and not think twice about being hassled by park rangers, or uh... getting mauled by bears. It may actually turn out to be more eventful than the actual camping trip we had planned. Phew. Isn't it awesome when a change of plans works out in everyone's favor? Bring on the s'mores, baby.
Before we had a change of plans, I began compiling a road trip playlist for our group car ride and, I figured that even though we are only staying nearby now, a roundup of great music is always an added bonus.
