Let's go Camping! Sure! I'll take the tent! It has 3 bedrooms, a huge living space, and so much room. So off we go! Me, my sisters Marti and Kathy, and our family friend who we adopted as our sister, Nancy. And time to put up the tent. Or try I should say,
Now come on! How hard can it be! I've had it for some time, and the box always said, easy assembly, can be set up in 5 minutes with one person! So what's wrong ladies, having a little trouble are we!?
Well, Nancy seemed to have a sense of humor about it, for maybe 5 minutes anyway, the alotted time to set it up, again, according to the box. But after trying over and over again, to no avail, I decided to call in reinforcements. The boys from the site behind us. Yeah, I did, I'm not proud that way. "You look like strong, intelligent men, could you possibly assist us in putting up this tent?" "Sure, no problem!! So over they came!
And about an hour later, back they went! They couldn't figure it out either. So on we tried, again to no avail. After watching the comedy of errors,
this young man, from the site on the other side of us, saw we needed some help and came to our rescue. Or so he thought! Well, an hour or so later, we dismissed him with a grateful heart, so he could get back to his site. He was just as frustrated as we were, and the 2 gents before him!
So, after trying in vain, here is our tent, all set up and ready to go! Different color you say!? Yep, we drove 20 miles to the nearest Wal Mart, where Nancy purchased a new one. The old one? Into the dumpster.
Oh well, this little guy lifted my spirits. He kept me entertained all the next afternoon. I'd throw down almonds, and he'd come right to my feet, stuff his pouches and take them back to his burrow. This went on all that day! What a little cutie! Chipmunks are the sweetest little guys, and the campground was full of them! So all's well that ends well! More tomorrow, but for now you can go to Mother Nature's Symphony to see some of the beauty that surrounded us on our trip!
