When we moved into our trailer is wasn’t quite finished. We hadn’t found a refrigerator that fit just right, we didn’t have the gas line for the stove hooked up and the shower wasn’t built yet. So we used our ice chest as a refrigerator, our BBQ as a stove and we hoofed it over to my mom and dad’s to shower every day (they live in the same trailer park as we do). At first it was like an adventure, like a really long camping trip in a really nice trailer. To add to the novelty we would hang out with our new neighbors, who quickly became very close friends, around a fire pit every night. It was a blast! Then it got old and we finished all of those projects, but it still took a while to feel like we were really living here and not just camping.
It took me a while to want to cook on a BBQ again and I truly appreciate my simple refrigerator because I vividly remember digging through the ice chest every day to cook. But now when we do go camping we are basically becoming pro at it, after all it’s the way we live. Our little travel trailer has every modern convenience (sans air conditioning). And we have been getting a lot of use out of it. This past weekend we camped in the middle of the desert and it was beautiful.
So the other night, finally back at home from a long camping trip, we were sitting around the fire pit with our neighbors once again. Roasting marshmallows, sipping wine, and my friend says to me “you know what? we should go camping”. Ha! Yes, we should.
