Camping- TOP TEN

Top 10 things
a very ‘spoiled’ adult may miss
when they make a decision
to go CAMPING
in a travel trailer
for an entire month:

1. A decent wi-fi connection. [I mean honestly, how hard is it to make sure that campers have a good wireless signal? I would be happy to give them a name of a great tech guy if they can’t figure it out]
2. A pillow-top mattress on a king-sized bed. [Dudley is really missing it, as he barely has room to move between the two of us]
3. A Starbucks store. [I should have thought of this before I made a decision to spend an entire month here]
4. A bathtub. [A month of vacation, with no LONG, HOT baths – I’m an idiot]
5. Cell phone service. [I actually don’t miss this at all, I hate phones – just added it to get to 10 faster]
6. Two bathrooms. [Sharing a bathroom with 3 adolescents is quite challenging – especially when sometimes they think: ‘straightening hair’ takes priority over ‘using the toilet’]
7. Cable television. [Although we have tons of movies, I miss LAW and ORDER re-runs]
8. A fenced-in back yard. [Note for next vacation: Kristie, next time you have a month-long vacation, and you are trying to decide what to do, ask yourself this question: ‘Will you need to pick up your dogs waste with a little doggy-bag for an entire month?’ – and then schedule vacation accordingly]
9. A washer and dryer that doesn’t take quarters to work. [Who knew I actually wash 6 loads of laundry every 3 days?]
10. A bedroom door with a lock on it. [Hmm…obviously didn’t think of that before we decided this would be a great idea………]

LOL @ U and your #1! Maybe they don't have a "decent internet connection" because they think people are actually there for a vacation in the great outdoors?? ;)

ALL CAPS!!!
STARBUCKS SHOULD BE #1, IF THERE WAS A CAMPGROUND WITH STARBUCKS YOU WOULD BE ALL SET, SINCE STARBUCKS HAS WI-FI!! I AGREE I HATE PHONES SO WOULD NOT MISS THE SIGNAL. WE ALWAYS HAVE TO PICK UP MACIE "STUFF IN A BAG" AND YOU COULD ALWAYS MAKE THE KIDS SLEEP IN A TENT FOR THE NIGHT AND JUST LOCK THE CAMPER DOOR YOU KNOW FOR OBVIOUS REASONS!!

The advantage of going on the Harley for a month is that you don't have to do laundry as much because you see people only once. You can stop at a Starbucks unless you our on Chincoteague Island, NJ. You have free wi-fi unless you are at the Atlantic Palace in Atlantic City or pay over $150.00 for the room (you have to pay for wi-fi if you have to pay more for a room). You can't take your dog so nothing to scoop up. You can't take your kids so you don't even have to shut the bathroom door. You can take a bath ... you takes a bath nowdaays, anyhow? You always have cell phone service unless you take a ferry ride. So, Harley trumps camping 10 times over.

I love that ALL CAPS made an appearance on this one...always nice to see you're still checking to make sure I am blogging!

Dad - no debate there. AGREED with all of your points....
