Camping


This may come as a big surprise to some people, not the peeps in the photos below, but I really like camping, or maybe I just really enjoy going on camping trips with people who have the ability to scare the living daylights out of me when it starts to get dark.

The weather this weekend made me think of perfect camping weather, and thus, it reminded me that I never gave these photos to my friends so I thought I would share them with everyone (against my better judgement because they are horrible and taken with a crap camera). Even though they are horrible, I think they really capture the essence of the trip and the creepiness of the night time there.

I think we went camping in September or October or maybe it was November at Green Ridge State Forest. It took three hours to get there but in all honesty it was worth it. Even though in order to get to the campsite itself you have to go through an hour of dirt roads which freaked me out so much because it reminded me of the start of one of those really bad horror movies. Especially when we had to get out of the car to see if we would be able to drive over this huge puddle. Puddle sounds so pathetic compared to what this was, maybe small river would be a better way to describe it.

This was also the first time I had been for real camping ie no bathrooms whatsoever. I think everyone else thought I would be miserable without running water, but to be honest it wasn't so bad at all. In fact, I think it was funny to walk through the woods to find a place to squat and avoid all the stark white toilet paper we had left everywhere.

Night time at this place was especially creepy. The entire time on the dirt road to our campsite, we saw no one. Literally, no cars, no people. At night, we could hear tons of people from other campsites even though we were the only campsite on our loop, probably at least a mile from the next one. And never did we see any train tracks on our way there, but all night we heard trains. We joked and said it was because we were drinking Coors...

Anyway, here's a few pics!

The only one I didn't take believe it or not as I am in 2 others. Photo credits for this photo go to the girl who is not helping saw the wood for our fire at all. :-)





Look at those crazy blue eyes! I still think we could be related.


The Ladies.


Can't wait until the next one!
