Roughin' It

We camped for a total of 24 hours and it was intense. I was thinking back to when I was a kid and how my parents would take us camping almost monthly (at least it seemed that way) and I don't remember it ever being difficult. We just showed up to the campsite, unpacked our tent, and that was it. At least that's what I thought. I didn't realize how much time and effort went into our monthly camping trips. So now that I am doing it myself I fully understand. It takes a ton of preparation and a lot of desire. You have to want to be grungy. You have to want to sleep on air mattresses. You have to want to pee in a pit toilet. And you have to want to deal with babies in the middle of the night, in a tent, with no warm water to make a bottle to shut them up so that the whole campground doesn't report you. Don't you worry...I'll be back, setting up camp soon. Despite the work, it's always a good time.

wow that campsite looks sweet. I love the campground sign. It looks so clean. It looks like you are at the beach almost. Cohen was loving that graco thing. Who did you go with?
