Here we go! I planned our route using Google's MyMaps, which let me play around with the order of the stops for maximum efficiency. Our first stop is Wegman's in Ithaca, since we're arriving around lunch time. We'll grab lunch and stock the cooler. We've decided to keep meals simple this time. We're doing Nicky's Pit BBQ take-out for dinner tonight, eggs and bacon or pancakes for the two mornings, sandwiches for lunch and hot dogs & beans for dinner tomorrow night. From home, we bought a carton of eggs, a jar of maple syrup, peanut butter and a loaf of bread. We're on a shoestring budget with this trip! We plan to maximize our time in the park, with free admission to the Gorge. We're also visiting the Botanical Gardens at Cornell while we are in Ithaca, which is free.
The trip represents a major milestone for us... the first time in nine years of camping with kids that we're diaper-free! We celebrated by getting the little guy his very own sleeping bag, just like his big sisters. (We love the kids' sleeping bags from REI.)
