10 Things for This Weekend

A quick roundup:

  1. If you live on the East Coast, you should be prepared for the "Frankenstorm".
  2. The CNI website will undergo and overhaul this weekend but it should be all fixed up by Monday.
  3. Did you vote yet?  Many states offer early voting which allows you to avoid long lines at the polls.
  4. For those not in the eye of the storm, this may be one of the last nice weekends to throw together a garage sale.  This will give your emergency fund or your Christmas fund a nice boost.
  5. Late hunting season will be picking up pretty soon.  This is a great way to fill up your freezer.
  6. Many stores are offering layaway for Christmas.  Start your Christmas shopping early and skip the last minute rush.
  7. A late fall weekend camping/backpacking trip is also a good idea--the views are great and the people are sparse.
  8. Even if you can't get away for the weekend you can get outside an play.  Exercise outside is a good thing for everyone.
  9. Check out your local grocery store's loss leaders--now is a great time to stock up on baking supplies.
  10. Get out and explore your city.  If you have a local Volksmarch organization you can take a walk with them and learn about some amazing/hidden/interesting trails around your city.
