I have been extrememly overwhelmed with setting up this event for the school faculty on Friday and I just wish Cari was here. Last night I decided that Starling and I should try a lil’ camping on for size and see how it went. Maybe next year we will be able to go to Burning Man too. It has been going on for a few years, but it is just starting to catch on with the cooler crowd, and I know we would fit right in.
Starling had done a little camping trip with Röbert a few weeks back, but he says it did not go well, and neither one would talk about it. I had Röb set up a tent and light a campfire in our yard for us and we went out to to cook our dinner in the wild.
After dinner we went over near the window and tried to read lips on the tv. It was so frustrating not to know what was going on! We were so bored by 7:30 we decided to go to bed, but when we saw the ugly sleeping bags we both burst into tears.
It was a school night anyway! It was really the right thing to go back inside, where we had lovely air-conditioning and there were no bugs and were able to take a long luxurious shower. I am going to look into the most luxurious way to experience camping out in the future.
