Rain Rain Go Away
What's more challenging than camping? - Camping in the rain. What's more challenging than camping in the rain? - Breaking camp in the rain. Picture yourself in a shower - a cold shower, with your clothes on. Now add to that scene a small house and all the belongings that go with it. Now dismantle that house in the cold shower, while wearing your clothes, pack it into designated boxes (this is another instance where shurkas would be helpful), and head home. Oh, but the fun is just beginning. This is the gift that keeps on giving because once you get home you get to do it all again. Since everything is wet, we get to "make camp" again in the backyard, wait a day or two for everything to dry off, then once again pack it up. And, this was sold to me as a relaxing outdoor activity that would give me a chance to recharge my batteries in the great fresh air? Thanks, but I'll stick to the Duracells, if you don't mind.
