Matt I headed out of town this weekend and ventured out into the middle of nowhere (literally…they give latitude/longitude coordinates instead of a real address to get to the campsite) for a little camping with some friends!
Our campsite was right on the bank of the Yuba River, which made for a very beautiful view and soundtrack for the weekend!
Friends, campfires, not showering, beer pong, horseshoes, a bald eagle sighting, kayaking (which really turned into floating), a lot of Catch Phrase, cooking outdoors, and sleeping outside made for a very fun weekend!
BUT here are my top 4 reasons why it is nice to be back home:
- Plumbing…the sites had no running water whatsoever.
- Bathrooms…it is not the easiest thing to have to traipse through a campsite in the dark of night, with the threat of bears, to get to the restroom! I always wake up in the middle of the night and have to go, so this makes it quite a bit more difficult than walking across the bedroom! Not to mention the fact that this bathroom was an outhouse (hence the no running water)!
- Ice chests…I love camping and spending time in the great outdoors, but I never appreciate my refrigerator more than when I come home from camping!
- Huge ants…I literally had a gigantic ant crawl up my pant leg while sitting by the fire!! It was disgusting!! So it is nice to be back home where there is no threat of invading ants!
