It’s been 18 years since I’ve been camping (if Albion Hills counts),
petrified excited to join a group organized to venture out into the wilderness! Insha’Allah.
Mostly, I’m in it for the halal smores.
Okay, okay, canoeing looks enticing too.
Although I can only swim with my goggles on.
Rock climbing ditto. Though I fear my wimpy arms will give out.
Did I mention my germophobia, creepycrawliesphobia, and guysaphobia?
And four days of being immersed with Muslims from my community. Oh boy.
I keep myself fairly isolated from this community for various reasons.
But I realized that I can’t say I feel alienated on a local television feature for Muslim Converts, without having tried to reach out. Again. Insha’Allah.
Mosquito net? Will make. Insha’Allah.
Sleeping bag? eBay delivers. Alhumdulillah.
Rock gloves? On its way. Alhumdulillah.
Volunteer counsellor? Only if they are
Here’s to July 5th-8th, 2012! Woo! Insha’Allah.
May it be of successful solitude in solidifying my shelter with God.
