I love Camping.

This past weekend while Kenny and Bun concluded their romantic Costa Rican honeymoon, Brian and I, along with the Speelmans' and the Wilms', went camping up at Bruce Peninsula National Park. It was pretty chilly. We didn't have any rain all weekend, which was awesome, but we did have an air mattress that refused to stay inflated, which was not awesome. We had a very cute camp guest (we can't decide if it was a chipmunk or a squirrel, it looked like neither and yet like both) who got irritated at us when we stopped paying attention - he scampered up onto a log (so that he would look more intimidating), got up onto his teeny-weeny hind legs, stuck his front paws up into the air and literally yelled at us. Yeah, it was amusing. The only picture I have of him is on the disposable camera so I can't post it. Too bad. He tried to come home with Mich and Jrod, as Brian was walking past their car while we were packing up on Sunday morning, he heard a loud "thump" as the rodent tried to dash out of the passenger side (closed) window. The rodent then proceeded to run around the interior of the car in tight, quick circles until he found the open window back and jumped out in to the forest.

Blogger won't let me upload the rest of my pictures right now. Check back here for an update today or tomorrow with more pictures.

Am I the only one that thinks camping is over rated?? The only saving grace for camping would be going with friends/family and having some sort of facilities (ie.shower, bug zappers) that makes one feel normal.
Good to read that you had a good time though, vOs!!

You need to do more camping, Eric! But you're right--family and friends definitely do make it more fun!
