Sweet, sweet turbid nectar

When RB asked me to go on an impromptu camping trip last Thursday, I was apprehensive mostly because I have been camping a total of three times in my life.

First Attempt: 1989, my backyard, rural northwest Iowa, I made it about an hour until I got scared and ran back into the house.

Second Attempt: 1992, Little Sioux Park, Correctionville, Iowa, 2 nights at 4-H Camp. Torrential Rain + Old Canvas Tent = I don’t camp again until the year 2000.

Third Attempt: 2000, My high school friend’s farm pond, 1 night. 6 Busch Lights, 2 Zimas, 1 Puking Rally.

Fourth Attempt: 2009, July 17-19, Wyalusing State Park, 2 nights, 4 new friends, great success! More details to come…

    I am called "RB"? Sounds badass if you ask me.

    "Impromptu"? More like completely spontaneous!

    I can't believe you actually went considering your dire camping history. The lure of impending storm clouds must have tipped the scales.
