Monday Brain Dump: Roughin’ It

Nothing feels better than a shower after 3 days without one.

Nothing feels better than your own nice, soft bed after sleeping on the hard, cold ground.

Does that mean I would take the weekend back? No way! This past weekend was our annual camping trip that we go on with our friends. Each year a different couple organizes it and this year it was at Sequoia National Park. Despite the horrible, rainy weather on saturday…the place was BEAUTIFUL! We had the best campsite ever too! Right next to a picturesque stream and a whole corner to ourselves. It felt so private.

Saturday we hiked to the General Sherman Tree which is the biggest tree in the world (volume wise). It was quite impressive. The hike was also really nice and the weather was cool and perfect for hiking.

Another cool thing about the trip was the amount of wildlife we saw: a bear, coyote, and a deer! One morning we woke up to find bear poop near our tent, which means a bear was in our campsite while we were sleeping!! Creepy!

The best part of the trip was the FOOD. We have a really cool friend that always goes camping with us named Paul who always handles the food. This year was the best ever. We had the usual hamburgers and hot links but also bratwurst, carne asada and chicken tacos, eggs, bacon, sausage, and even pancakes! Everything was SO YUM! Some people also made brownies and rice crispies treats and not to mention the gazillion snacks we had. And nothing beats the banana boats and smores we make over the open fire.

I think despite this being the worst weather-wise camping trip I feel like I truly love camping now. I’m not scared about “roughing it”…well at least for less than 3 days ha ha. I can’t wait for the next one!

(Pictures to come later since I’m waiting to get them from friends)

You guys really do rough it! We’re frou frou, always at least a 2 minute walk from showers and bathrooms. Glad you had fun!
