Thought we were really “roughing it”

When my brother told me that he wanted to go camping I thought that it was a great idea.

It has been a really long time since I have been out in Mother Nature, connecting with all of the natural beauty that normally escapes me.

I was extremely excited about the plan because I had a brand new tent that I really wanted to try out. I wanted to go out into the middle of the woods with nothing but the bare necessities and find out how my new equipment would withstand the ice cold temperatures and unpredictable snowfall. We set a date for our big camping trip and hoped that the outdoor air temperature would not plummet to low to make the trip miserable. I realized that I was a lot more concerned about the climate and outdoor temperature than anybody else was, however I thought that they were just tougher than I. I didn’t want to be the person who was complaining about the climates and air conditions the entire time, so I actually started immersing myself in Ice Cold air temperatures at home in order to prepare. When the day of the big camping trip arrived, however, I was absolutely shocked. My brother apparently had a very different idea of “roughing it.” He had rented a massive RV with heating, cooling, and air quality control inside. I was the only one who planned on staying in a tent. I guess now I know why I was the only one who felt concerned about the outdoor air temperature and falling snow.
