“Now that you have seen the desert, let’s go camping. You can see so much more if you are there for an entire day, and a night.”
Why not. I loved camping thirty years ago. How much harder could it be now? “Sounds like fun!”
When I was married we did car camping. There was a bathroom around, a table. But we slept in a tent. I could make a mean beef strogonoff with a camp stove. Water? There was a spigot at the camp site. One time I remember carrying two gallon jugs of water back to the site to wash dishes.
The late April evening before our scheduled trip Don gave me a few instructions. “Bring plenty of warm clothing. It gets cold at night. And food. We will have a fire to cook. You got a sleeping bag at Walmart. Bring that. We should have fun!”
