HNT...Home away from home

I have had a wonderful home away from home on my camping adventures. And it won't be an adventure if I didn't take pictures to share!

I have absolutely no idea how this picture happened but I didn't delete it b/c after looking at it I liked the "creepy" factor to it. This was night two at the Becoming an Outdoor Woman weekend. I was in my tent and asleep by 9 pm! I was beat! You can see the bags under my eyes even in this crazy shot!
I am loving my Eureka two person tent. I just need to figure out a few more weekends to use it yet this summer!
I'm tucked in for the night without the dog on this trip. Makes for a lot more room plus I only had a #50 backpack so not a lot of space to haul extras. I slept like a log this night though. And yes, you can still tell how chewed up my ankles are from the prior weekend plus all the new ones.
Happy HNT!

That 1st pic is scary. FYI, the only way I go camping is if I'm in motor home. I need my comfort. Glad you had a good time though.

Your outdoorsy stuff was easy to relate to and I tripped along all the way down the page to ur earlier adventures. I used to be a Scoutmaster & I sorely miss camping -- you have reawakened some of the outdoorsman in me. AND I know how I'm gonna do it -- I'm not gonna worry anymore about getting my place ready for friends and family that almost never come. If I let the mobile home just be its immobile self, I can mobilize MYself & go anywhere I want!

There's a lot of great outdoors nearby & I have lived by myself for 10 years after raising my sons so they could leave me. What the heck am I sticking around this unkempt mobile home for? I clean & sort a little bit every day & that's enough. My life has always been centered on other people, but they've all left -- one way or another. I pretty much keep myself occupied all the time anyway, so why bother doing it within the confines of the same ol' 4 walls? I have retired pay to burn away from the local bar & grill! Sorry to ramble on, but I think I just turned over a new leaf!
HHNT & Thanks, Moosie, you've been a Good Muse tonight!
