Are you ready to go camping?

Yesterday turned out to be one of those days where we look around at the end of it and say, “… and let us never speak of it again.” Nothing horrible, really, just not a good day in terms of patience and kindness to your fellow family members. It turns out that sometimes absence DOES make the heart grow fonder, especially if you’re talking about escaping a small box by taking a walk for a while. So.
Accordingly, then, rather than regaling you with more tales of our exploits, I thought there’s been so much general interest in camping that I might help some of the on-the-fence amongst you decide if camping is right for your family. You know, because I’m an expert. Or I play one on the Internet. Or something. I forget.
Really, there are just a few key things you need to ask yourself if you’re considering taking your family camping. And—as usual—I’m here to help. Don’t be scared.
Do you enjoy sleeping under the stars, and by “under the stars” I mean “with nothing but nylon separating you from the wild, in extreme temperatures, and possibly being eaten by bears?”
If the answer is yes, you’re probably ready to go camping in a tent. Also, I think you’re nuts, but whatever.
If the answer is no, don’t worry! Camping may still be right for you! Keep going….
I’ve shared this on Twitter and Facebook, so apologies to those of you who’ve already read it, but it’s just too funny. Click on the link to read the whole thing!
I camped when I was, oh, under 40. This just confirmed what I already knew…Zou is welcome to take the boys camping anytime. On his own.
