Insights from my recent vacation
My wife will always sneak another log onto the campfire when I'm not looking
Cane fishing poles can be dangerous when snagged on a weed.
The full moon is very bright.
Cars don't operate well with radiator problems.
Be very nice to the camp host, you never know when your car will break down with radiator problems, in the middle of the forest, with no cell phone signal and he happens to drive by.
A chipmunk, can provide hours of entertainment.
While camping, always prepare meals near an awning or something that you can dash under when it rains.
When getting out of a lake, make sure the you dry off REALLY well otherwise you could get Chiggers.
Chiggers itch REALLY bad.
Catch really big fish, that way when I screw up filleting them there is still meat left to eat. (Okay, so I'm not THAT bad, but compared to my Grandfather, I'm awful.)
It's hard to catch really big fish.
Life is better right next to a lake.
Always carry your raincoat. Walks aren't as much fun in a down pore when it's cold outside.
You can have a lot of fun with a paper plate over the course of a week.
Be careful of where you put your tent when it rains every day in a week.
Family time and traditions are SO important in life. I cherish every time I get to go to our campground. I don't get to do it often enough anymore and I may not get to do it with all the special people in my life the next time I go.
Just a few things that learned or was reminded of over the coarse of my week. I thought I would help somebody in the future. On a side note, Chiggers do itch REALLY bad. :)
