Observations of a Camping Trip

This past weekend our Cub Scout pack spent some time at a great place called Lake Chewalla in the Holly Springs National Forest. It was a great time for the kids to just be kids, learn a little about Scouting and for the adults to get to know each other a little better. Some I’ve known, some are new. I didn’t know if it was because I’m getting a little older or trying to listen to the whispers of God a little more; but, I did make some observations about our little excursion.

1. The Coleman 1 minute tent is the greatest thing since sliced bread. 

2. It doesn’t matter what the fare, it’s the company over dinner that counts.

3. The first night sleeping anywhere new is strange.

4. Eggs, biscuits and coffee taste better outside.eggs




5. With the right encouragement, kids will do just about anything,

6. Plans are great; but, you need to be flexible.

7. My husband has a little more gray than in used to. But then again so do I.

8. Grilling for 50 people can be therapeutic. burgers

9. Sleeping for a second night in a new place with a party going on is strange.

10. Bird songs are beautiful; but, not at 6:00 in the morning. chewalla-300x185




11. It’s amazing how much cleaner one feels by just brushing one’s teeth.

11. It doesn’t matter if you catch anything, just spending time fishing with your son is enough.

12. A house is empty without a dog.

  1. I laughed out loud at “bird songs are beautiful, but not at 6 in the morning.” I found your blog on pinterest – this post is perfect because I am going to buy a tent tomorrow for a little camping “fun” we have planned next weekend! I’ll definitely look into the tent you recommended. Thanks for sharing!
