Number 1. I can live without air conditioning for a few days, if I have short intervals of car a/c to bring me back to life as needed.
Number 2. Females peeing in the woods, is just as unrealistic and difficult as it always has been, an art I do not possess. This story is being withheld for fear of losing my most faithful follower, my mother.
Number 3. My shower phobia, def: fear of using a shower other than my own, gag reflux at the sight of hair in the drain, and the spine chilling affect that I get by seeing a wet bar of soap that I didn't use, is much better in a campground shower because the lighting is very poor.
Number 4. GPS systems are nice, but you still have to use your brain and can't believe everything they tell you. e.g. If we were
Number 5. That a low water pressure shower, in lukewarm water, is very refreshing after being smothered in sunscreen, bugs, and sweat, and having to deal with list item Number 2.
Number 6. Scavenging raccoons do not like their meals interrupted by a crying baby. This causes the varmint to snarl and growl like a vicious dog, causing Mommy

Number 8. After incident Number 2, campground restrooms are a thing of luxury and a sight for sore eyes.
Number 9. That I really don't have an internet addiction because I didn't even miss not being able to check my email or blog, okay it's cause I knew I'd be able to soon, and it was only 3 days.
Number 10. People come in all shapes and sizes, styles and personalities, and they are sometimes used for God's greatest dose of medicine, laughter. I laughed so much this past weekend that my jaws hurt,
Number 11. It's always best to have an extra person present when showering a screaming, yelling 4 year old who thinks camp showers are more disturbing than her mother does. This way it appears less likely that you are abusing your child, because it sure sounds like child abuse and all the campers hear it.
Number 12. That we have a great family who made this camping trip possible, because everyone knows, I'm not an avid outdoorsy girl and doesn't have the energy to make this weekend happen all on my own. There were 6 extra helping hands to wipe faces, kiss boo-boos, change diapers, make trips to the potty and hold a homesick baby. It was a great trip, and alot of fun for us all. Pictures coming soon, until then I'll be enjoying my nice, soft, warm bed...
