This trip served as a good run through for our next big (longer AND further from home) camping trip. This was also my second trip using GMD flats exclusively. Whatever love for flats I developed during the Flats Challenge while using flour sack towels has increased by about 1,000 with these flats. They're bigger (I bought green edge/ large), thicker, more absorbent, and somehow flatter. Not flatter as in thinner, obviously. I mean, I don't feel the need to iron these just to get a decent fold. They stay pretty square AND the edges don't curl up. I still want to get a half dozen Swaddlebees flats to try out, but I am VERY happy I got these.

On a side note, this stuff is AMAZING. I got the tip from So Hollywood on Twitter. She read about the bad sunburn and suggested I try coconut water - to drink as well as to apply directly to your sunburn. She equated it to the magical healing powers of breastmilk.
It's been years since I've had a burn this bad (I'll spare you the pictures), but I am not blistered or peeling and I think this had something to do with it... just a little FYI for you as we're getting into the swing of summer.
