…at what a good time I had camping this weekend! As I’ve mentioned, I’m not an especially outdoors-y person. But we were with a great group, including a few experienced campers!
I was also shocked at how DARK it was when my husband’s snoring woke me up in the middle of the night. I literally could not see my hand in front of my face. I’d never been in darkness like that. That was the only part of the trip I didn’t like — my mind started spinning to places it should not go: serial killers, fires, earthquakes and fretting about what I’d do if I found myself needing to use the facilities in the middle of the night! 🙂 (Two other moms did have to go to the bathroom then. One said she instantly became 7 years old again and chose to pee mere steps outside her tent; the other mom said that walk to the bathroom was the scariest of her life!)
But that middle-of-the-night fear aside, this single trip may have converted me into a camper. If you know of a definitive guide to/website about Bay Area car camping (or if you know of the perfect location), please let me know!
