that’s right. i’m home from guatemala for less than 24 hours, and my family is heading off for a camping vacation. we have camped, usually once every summer, for years. for the past 5 or 6 years, it’s been with our good friends, john and vicki freese, and their family. this year, we decided to try something different: we rented an RV.
now, let me make this clear: we rented one RV. two families. one RV. 11 days. it will either be fantastic or horrible. we might kill each other, or want to.
we’re bringing a tent for the three kids, and the adults will sleep in the RV. it’s a nice one, with bathroom (including a shower), a kitchen, two slide-out sections, and all that good kind of stuff. but, still — 11 days.
we’re heading to yosemite today (actually, to a nice campground just outside the park), for 4 nights. that’s our ‘hot’ part of the trip (temperatures at the campground say upper 80s and sunny). then we drive over to the california coast and stay 3 nights at morro bay state park, a notoriously cold and cloudy camping spot (our ‘cold’ part of the trip, where highs will be in the low 60s). then a bit more south to pismo beach state park for another 3 nights, before heading home.
my blogging is likely to be spotty. i’m trying to have posts ready to go. but we’ll see what happens.
