Not the Dreaded Camping

Monday, June 18, 2012

This weekend I am going to a Pirate Festival by the Oregon Coast and I am camping! I couldn't afford a hotel because of the festival/summer hike in rates and the rest of my friends are camping. I detest camping but it is the cheap alternative.

I hate the hard ground, the dirt, the noise, the extra effort to make simple coffee, the chilly nights, etc.

I am trying to be positive. I am taking a memory foam mattress to avoid the hard ground. I am bringing my coffee press for coffee, I am refusing all other meals that will require dishes, I am buying some junk jackets from Good Will to keep warm. It is at a state campground so I can shower in the morning and not feel all icky.

On the plus side it is a pirate festival which I plan to totally dress up for. Anne Bonnie eat your heart out.

    An air mattress might really help your back from feeling out of sorts in the morning and help keep you warm. I am from Oregon and miss it so much. Have fun at the festival!
