I had 2 chigger bites still 2 weeks later. And man they itched. I don't get bites like this in my house.
No room to move.
My little 14-month-old needs room to toddle around and play and a small little camper does not have enough space for him. So we take him outside where it's....
Hot and Humid.
I mean who camps in July in the south? 'nuff said.
The Potty Situation.
My mom was worried about having to empty the 'potty tank', so she strongly encouraged us to use the public potties. UGH. Nothing like having to potty at 6:00 am and having to put shoes on and walk outside in your pjs to go to a stinky potty filled with daddy long-legs (eeek!) to go potty. I don't need this.
I saw a snake in the campground. It was dead. But that was enough for me.
Picture 6 of us in one 5th wheel. Yes it technically has a bedroom, but the whole thing is like one room. Sis & I slept on the couch that made out into a queen-sized bed, Brody was on the floor under our bed (his choice), and the baby was in the pack-n-play right next to us. If someone turned over in the night, the whole trailer shakes. Nice.
Ok, so surely I have something nice to say about camping.
uh...let me think.
It was great to see my Seattle-living brother who I get to see maybe once a year?
But, I only saw him for a few mins as he was in a beautiful wedding that weekend.
Ah, there we go, the whole reason we camped...the wedding. A gorgeous wedding in a stunning chapel in the words. That was definitely worth the camping-pain I endured.
