Camping adventure

On Halloween, four girls went on an adventure in the woods. 

Makes sense, right? 

I was 100% convinced we were going to die. I mean, come on. That is the perfect plot for a horror movie. And if I was in a slasher film, I would die first FO SHO. 

But we all came out alive, although we did end up a little annoyed with Katie's snoring and the lack of running water. 

We headed to Hitchcock Nature Center in Honey Creek, Iowa on Friday afternoon. Our cabin was adorable, and we quickly got unpacked. 

Then Missy, Katie and I got some beers and decided to go on a quick hike. Emily was meeting us later. 

What is that thing, you ask? Missy's selfie stick. It is amazing. And yes, I already bought myself one off amazon. 

After our hike, Emily arrived and we started a fire for hot dogs, marshmallows and hot apple cider. 

Saturday morning we went on an actual hike. We highly overestimated our hiking skills, because wow. Ouch. No amount of half marathon training prepared me for that. 

After that, we hit civilization again and went to a bar to watch the Huskers play. We also ran into a winery, and of course we went in for a tasting. 

When we got back to our cabin, we played Cards Against Humanity, made some chili over the fire and stayed outside until we couldn't handle the cold and wind anymore. Any guess on who had to go inside first? (It was me.) 

Here's one more fun pic, compliments of the selfie stick.
