We hadn't been tent camping in a while...and
I forgot how much I had grown to appreciate the conveniences of civilized life...like not having to ration water and washing my hands where-ever and when-ever I wished...next time I will be packing an x-tra large bottle of hand sanitizer!!!
Also can't forget about the basic necessity of flush toilets ( a given on any womans list,) and not having to check to see if there are any critters in the corners before tinkling...(My daughter found a mouse scurrying around and I found a huge spider... eeew!) what I can say, I will never underestimate this again.
But all in all the good outweighed the bad by far...
I just loved having the sky so crystal clear at night that it looked like a bizzillion stars showed up to toast marshmallows with us and tell campfire stories. So after all it was a great send off to the last few beautiful days that Summer offered...
So we were we packed up and headed home with a smile and glad to be back home...Then the boys started school and the rains began...Hello Fall!
Over at designing dna they have a delightful post about Gypsy caravans that you just can't miss...Go check it out...now that's what I call camping!
