He said she brought food, a tent, clothes, backpack and numerous other items with her. She told him she planned to camp in the area about ten miles north-northeast of the drop off. He told the deputy she has done this before. This was her second or third time, which is why he was not concerned about her returning to the area, however this was the longest time she had been camping out in that area.
