How camping reminds me of my first apartment!

Posted 01-29-2009 at 09:49 PM by kiteri
Well, other than the obvious fact that most of my dishes, silverware and pots that I used in my first apartment have now been turned into my camping gear.... I have a few other reasons that going camping reminds me of my first apartment:

1. I didn't have a stove/microwave. I had a single burner hot plate that I could cook the "basics" on. Ramen Noodles, Macaroni & Cheese, and Campbell's condensed soups were food groups in and of themselves for those first years in my...

Well, even though the results of an unofficial poll are not in… I am definitely a minority in the camping world… A woman that takes her kids camping.

I am usually a little uneasy about being the lone adult in some of the desolate places that camping can bring.

Today, I was on the elevator in my office with all guys. I caught my reflections in the highly polished elevator doors. My shoulders were broader than all the guys’ in the elevator. I was also the tallest person...

Then there are those who drive up to a nice campsite in an organized campground with a tent, a cooler, and maybe some fuel/battery operated supplies.

As I mentioned, my son got his tonsils out on December 31. I guess they clamp your tongue, and that the clamping messes with your taste buds. All he has been able to eat that doesn't "taste funny" is spaghetti-O's.

I miss camping!!!
