So, here’s the scoop. I have had intestinal distress for a week now, but really had my heart set on camping. However, it is Memorial Day weekend, which means that everyone and their dog will be camping, and camping is a private activity for me. No drunk strangers, please.
So I mentioned to Lloyd that we could just move the Honda (which has been sitting in the back of driveway for a year) and park the Prius there so I could camp in the backyard. He went above and beyond!
I came home to find that he and Harold had moved the benches (thank you, Harold!) then he swept all of the leaves and mud away so we could use the firepit! Score!!
It was perfect. I set up the tent, built a fire, made dinner using the grill and a microwave – as God intended – and was blessedly close to a bathroom. Lloyd moved the wireless router so he could have Internet, so everyone was happy.
Lesson learned? I need more trees planted around the patio so the neighbor’s withering looks can’t hurt me. 🙂
The Habitent is a good thing. We had no condensation, and slept with our heads toward the back of the car. The screen was down and I clipped the fabric door so it was halfway up. We had a little rain but no water came in. Downside? My back hurts a wee bit. I will soon be too old for this.
