Lessons Learned from Camping

Well, I did it. I survived my first camping trip! Although it rained hard & often it was still a great time.

What did I learn?

  1. Food cooked over a campfire is way better {and a lot easier to clean up}
  2. Camping is absolutely exhausting but relaxing by the fire makes it well worth it
  3. My mattress at home that I aways complain isn't so bad anymore
  4. Try and remember to pack a pillow...
  5. ...and a toothbrush
  6. Old jeans and TShirts....glad I went with them
  7. There is no way to water proof a tent
  8. You WILL get wet & dirty no matter what
  9. I can deal with the rain and dirt but I cannot deal with spiders
  10. I could definitely do this again!

I'm glad you had a good time! :)

I only go camping if there are ablution block - proper bathrooms so I can shower at night and do my business. :)
