How camping reminds me of my first apartment!

Posted 01-29-2009 at 08:49 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 apartment! Gee...I cook all of these when we are camping!!!!

2. I didn't have a "bed". I had an airmattress that I slept on so it could be deflated during the day. (I lived in an efficiency where my living room was also my bedroom)

3. I had to share a bathroom with another efficiency appartment on my floor. I still use the little white plastic bag with handles to carry all my cosmetic essentials to the bath houses at the camp grounds that I used to scurry down the hall to the bathroom in my first apartment with.

Ah.... I knew there was a reason I love camping so much... even more than the "one with nature" element!!!!

My first apartment was in a nasty roach and crime infested place (but it was cheap). No fond memories there.

I loved my first apartment. 18 and FREE!!! A combination that, looking back, was very dangerous... but I came through okay.
