I am astounded.

We went camping yesterday/last night with a coworker of the husband and they showed me a slice of American life I have never been aware of.

Brace yourselves- this is a big one.

Did you know that there are people in the world who have never been camping, never had a s’more- much less a roasted marshmallow, never been fishing, never even set up a tent?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

I did not know that these type of people existed!  I had heard of them in folk tales and stories of the like but never before had I encountered one in person.  An experience to be relished I assure you.

I’m not sure at what point I realized that I was dealing with noobs- perhaps when the 4 year old’s fishing pole was unpackaged and we had a “casting” lesson.  Or when the tent came out and hilarity ensued.

Apparently, if you’ve never been camping you have no reason to know how to assemble a tent.

I was told that had we not been there, youtube was going to be consulted…. I found one for them- for next time.

Then we built a fire and introduced these fine folks to s’mores.  Real ones- not the kind from a microwave.

It was love at first bite.

All in all, not a bad night.  Our new tent was hot as two cats getting freaky in a wool sock but we managed.

Can’t wait to get out again!

    Sounds like you had a great time! I love camping. We used to go all the time when I was a kid. I haven’t been camping in a long time though. Perhaps we’ll have to work that into the schedule soon!
