Last time I went 'camping'

I was in Africa. That was last fall. I always loved camping as child but I must admit it had been a very long time since I had done the tent thing. It had been over thirty years, as a matter of fact! But tenting on Safari is quite another thing. This was luxury all the way! There was even a wonderful deep claw foot style tub in the large bathroom....yes, it even had it's own bathroom, double sinks, a shower, all out in the great out of doors! So much so the hippos were within a few feet of my bed that night. I will never forget this wonderful experience!

This little reminder of camping has come up because I unearthed Trailer Trash today, she's my 1959 Aljo (nightmare). The wind apparently was able to get to the siding (even though she was covered this winter) and ripped several areas beyond repair. So I am now facing a bit bigger and more expensive endeavor. I just want to go camping!!!! But since she is in pieces at this moment it will indeed be sometime before I I will just luxuriate in the memories of my last 'camping' trip.


  1. Hey ... how bad do you want to go camping? If you don't mind an outhouse, propane stove, hopefully a battery that still operates lights and frig, we could go out to Kelso next month. Haven't been there this year so the paths are probably overgrown, but we can sit on the deck all day, look at the lake and waterfowl, read and just relax. Maybe a fire in the evening.

  2. Are kidding, of course I want to go! That sounds like so much fun!!! I can bring a machete!

  3. Woohoo!!! You're on
