Not a Happy Camper











I appreciate indoor plumbing. I detest s'mores. Even though I'm not much of a camper, I spent Saturday night outdoors shivering in a sleeping bag. Here's a short list of what I learned on my weekend expedition: The distant barking of farmers' hounds is far more annoying than the occasional yapping of neighbors' dogs. Conversely, owls and coyotes make cool sounds. Hippies drumming at a nearby site do not. And deer sound exactly like zombies as they tromp through the woods.

    camping here is a joke,I remember going camping without campgrounds where we had to go into the woods to do what bear does and drink some creek or lake water.

    I agree with Meesha; it's hard to get far off the beaten track in 21st century America. Still, you can see some lovely sights and hear some interesting sounds, eh?

    It can't hurt, BGO.

    Deer are so plentiful, UL, that I just discovered a herd living in the unfinished portion of my basement.

    I'm so grateful that your assessment is accurate, M.V.

    Thanks, as always, Rick.

    Should have stuck around a bit longer on Saturday. Had I known, we could have made s'mores in the microwave, and I wouldn't have been so stingy about our facilities.
