You know the camping was good when..

Your children (now in their late 20's) still break up laughing when they retell to their friends the stories of sudden rain squalls and tornado warnings and flip flops floating down the river from a 32 day cross country trip 15 years ago.... (Well worth taking the extra three weeks of vacation unpaid...)

You know the camping was good when you have taken your Airstream. Meeting new friends and reconnecting with old ones is a big bonus.

You know the camping is good when...

Bed is too small to rest my tiredness,
I'll take a hill for a pillow, soft with trees,
Now draw the clouds up tight beneath my chin.
God, blow out the moon, please.

You know the camping is good when one of your kids goes back to the family campground of the dozen past years for his honeymoon--the same week the rest of the family is there camping too. "Just couldn't miss it," they said.

You know camping is good when you have your favorite camp photo on your desktop. (guilty )

I have two...

#1. You know the camping is good

when the kids (in their early 30s) keep asking when can they go on a trip with us.

Hah! Dream on kids... that 34footer is only big enough for the two of us.
This is empty nesting on wheels!

#2 The camping was good when

we turned in early every night and got up just in time for brunch.

At 58, that's priceless!

(I read that as you age you need less sleep)

The camping is good when we sleep in the trailer and the kids sleep in the tent outside.

You know the camping was good when.............

#1 When you camp in the driveway the first night back home.

#2 When you come home with addresses of new friends.

#3 When you have learned a new song over the weekend.

#4 When your daughter tells you that you're going camping next weekend.

#5 The above are quantified by how many hugs you had over the weekend.
