The Forlorn Camper
My WTC group is currently camping in the Sierras just west of Bishop. I caught a most unfortunate and untimely cold that prevented my going. I have a brand new sleeping bag I was pumped to try out on this trip too. It is a Marmot “Never Summer” that I got on super sale from REI for $107!
Instead I have taken up temporary residence on the couch and have come to learn that my favorite food is Ricola. Though I seem to only have claim to two-thirds of the couch now. I recently got up to use the restroom only to find my dog, The Nudge, curled up on the last cushion citing “Squater’s Rights.”
I keep looking at the clock and wondering what the group is doing “right now.” Right now, they should be on their way back from a short hike to due at camp by 5pm for dinner and happy hour.
I would like to add though that the upside of missing the snow camp trip was that I got to spend a wonderful and unbooked weekend with my lovely wife, Miranda Kopfschmertzen. I also got to have super delish dinner with some friends on Saturday night.
You just made my heart do a happy dance.
Glad that we could be a suitable alternative to snow camp!
