Camping 2005-August

We took all the kids out to the woods for a camping expedition and boy did THEY have fun. We used our new tent for the first time and was some what happy with it. It did not have the separate compartments we thought it had but it served its purpose. The second tent is the first tent we ever bought and her Naval officer brother-Seaman Douglas P.-(hehehehe I said seaman lol! ) used that one. It looks small from the outside but is very roomy on the inside. Especially if its only for one person.

We all had our jobs the wife and myself had the job of setting up camp and all that came with it and the baby had fire duty. And as you can see he did a wonderful job.

For those of you that have never been camping and never been around wild life, here is a little hint. Don't fuck with them! They are not cuddly little animals that want you to feed and pet them. If you are looking for that go to a 4H meeting and go to the petting zoo. And bears are superior in strength and speed in the woods, you are evading their territory. We may be on top of the food chain, but a bear can tear off your arms just for shits and giggles. For all those yuppie scum that come to the woods they have posted warning labels on the trees for you to read. Because we all know that people like you are the reason they have "Do not eat" labels on preparation H cream.

We were attacked by a tree so I thought I would teach him a lesson.

We went to the bait store bought a license to fish, some gear and head out to the lake. After hours of fishing all we caught was more bait lol. To add to my aggravation I seemed to have lost my freaking license to throw a line in the water and hope for a fish. I can't believe I have to pay for the ability to fish. WWJD is running through my mind for some reason right now, mainly because I would like to send these politicians a bibical plague for setting this up!

When all is said and done it was a good trip. I got buzzed in the woods when Doug brought a bottle of Southern Comfort, the baby did a head dive into the lake(too funny for words), we saw two frogs, roasted marshmallows, and got really dirty. I was sooooo grateful to be home though, camping makes one really appreciate everything around you. Running water, private showers, soap, walls made of wood and stone, and all the comforts of home. If I had to live like this all the time I would not be a happy camper.
