What? Do You Think I Can't Handle It?

We are going camping. Yes, you read that right. I am camping. And I'm excited about it.

Couples' camping, leaving the kiddos with their gracious and loving grandparents.

There seems to be a general consensus, from those who know me well, that this will be more than I can handle, I have no idea what I am signing on for, and the people who are taking me will have stories to tell of my wilderness ineptitude.

My brother's text to our fellow camping friends: Camping? My sister? Have you met her?

What?? You people think I can't handle this??

Oh, I can.

It helps that we are taking a fully equipped camper.

And it helps that I am no longer 15, with my number one priority being the maintenance of my hair. It is a relief in many ways to be past that life stage.

Oh, I am so all over this. You just wait to read, hear, and see what a pro I am at all things outdoors.

Bring on the s'mores.

Oh Tricia....I can't say I envy you. I am proud to say that I am in no way over the hair issue. Even after all these years. Have a wonderful time. Just getting away is always fun. But I think I'm with Rob on this one.

Define "fully equipped camper?"

let me know how it goes...I am supposed to camp later this summer, but am really skeptical that I could have fun that far away from a starbucks and a comfortable mattress.

High maintenance?

YOU BET.

My first thought is not that you can not handle it, I just wonder about the nail upkeep! In my 20+ years of camping I have never seen or known anyone to do their nails at a site! I hope these are not serious campers you are going with, they may give you a hard time if you break out the polish! I hope you have fun!
