Last stop before Cape May

I'm leaving this evening for Cape May, for my long camping weekend with Gretchen. I thought I should once again check the weather--oy vey:
It's changed almost every day I've looked at it, but this is the worst by far. Rain all three days!? Really?
Well, I guess whatever happens happens. I've birded in the rain out there before, with the Flock two years ago (our first migration).
Just hope the tent doesn't leak.
I got a real bargain last night at Target: an inflatable mattress, twin-sized, with onboard pump (4 D batteries) for... get this!... $7.54! It was on clearance! SWEET!
I'll try to get some good pics!

Good luck. The rain might not turn out so badly, though I guess camping complicates matters. By the way, did you hear about the Say's Phoebe?

I hope it goes well, D!

I'm a big fan of the inflatable mattress. And for $7.54? Holy cow, what a bargain!

Good luck. Have loads of fun!

What fun .. hope it came with patches! The rain pounding on the tent while white streaks of lightning are punctuated with thunder claps. Then, in the morning the day dawns clear and warm and the birds are all chirping!! What a deal!

John--the woman at the CMBO said no one had seen him Friday or Saturday.

Lisa--thanks!

Earl--but twin size is good for only one person!

Donna--your wish worked for about 15 mins on Friday evening!

Rabbits' Guy--only one sunny patch, but it was bearable.
