Ah, Summer and Camping ... Not!

With schools starting to let out for the year and people welcoming summer with open arms, I'd be willing to bet that a lot of people will be heading out into the great outdoors and participating in that wonderful ritual called "camping".

Now, my version of roughing it - as camping is often called - basically means a hotel without free wireless internet but for millions of people there is nothing in the world like becoming one with nature and heading out into the wilds armed only with a pop-up tent, a sleeping bag, a flashlight, a water canteen, and dehydrated foods. Oh, and bug spray and sunscreen and bandaids and ...

Have fun, folks, I'll meet you over by the free Continental breakfast when you get tired of the great outdoors!


  1. Aw, come on Linda. Camping is fun! I even did it a couple years ago with my bad back, sleeping in a sleeping bag on the hard ground. Seemed to actually make my back feel better, come to think of it! The biggest drawback for me was getting up in the middle of the night, searching for my shoes and not having anything to grab hold of to pull myself up all the while, my system was telling me to "hurry, hurry! Gotta go, gotta go!" But it was still fun.

  2. it really is enjoyable and relaxing...I'm going for a few days next week...smile.


Thanks for visiting!
