"I must be out of my mind!"
Our first camping trip was with a Starcraft popup camper. We had decided to try camping, my wife had never camped before. The first trip was almost the way you hear it advertised, sunny warm days, cool breezy nights, peace and quiet, etc, etc...
Then we decided the first trip had been such a success, we should do it again. That was our first mistake.
We arrived at the camprground early evening, in a very light drizzle. Set up the camper with no trouble, just a little grumbling about getting wet.
We stepped into the camper, turned on a light, and the deluge started. It rained for three days straight, 24 hours a day. When it didn't rain, it poured. We had record rainfall for that weekend.
By the time we left, we were reduced to huddling in the exact center of the camper, with rain pouring through the canvas almost everywhere. Sometime on day two, I remember thinking that I must have lost my mind. We decided maybe we should put pontoons under the camper, and make it a houseboat.
We got back into town Sunday night, Monday morning I was looking at our current trailer, an Argosy.
We have had several more short trips in the Argosy since, and we have learned that rain around here is an excellent way to make new friends, especially when you have a dry trailer, and the people on both sides of you are in tents...
Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.
