Posted by nonnasnonsense on August 16, 2009

several of these comments were actually heard around our campsite in NOT-so-sunny Florida last month:

soggy camping

No, our tents did not pass the leak test.

Yes, the campfire was kaput after the first night.

No, we didn’t have harmless flies.

Yes, we had lovely, hungry, blood-thirsty mosquitoes.

Yes, the old man was snoring (and seashore said cheeseburger’s snoring had quieted some – if that’s true, i think she is a saint, cuz i woulda murdered his noisy butt in his sleep a lonnnng time ago!)

No, we didn’t get to go fishing outside the tent.

Yes, the raccoons went fishing in my cooler!

No, we didn’t give in to nature.

Yes, we went tubing. in the rain. in the coooold water.

Yes, we turned blue.

No, we didn’t see any gators (thank goodness!)

Yes, we saw river otters, turtles, and many many fish.

No, the rain didn’t stop. ever.

Yes, we took over the pavilion and had a blast playing Aggravation.

No, i didn’t win (probably because i had no minions to influence and brainwash).

Yes, they talked me into driving farther south to leave behind the rain.

No, i didn’t want to have farther to drive back home 🙂

Yes, i’m glad they talked me into it, because i actually got to experience some hot, sunny FL weather.

Yes, seashore’s AC decided to conk out during the hot, sunny FL weather.

Yes, believe it or not, i had a great time and plan to do it again. hopefully, without the rain.

No, i’m not posting pictures at this time.

Yes, i’m lazy like that, so there!

  1. It sounds like a heck of a vacation!

    Congratulations on your 100th post!

    even though it was quite miserable at times, it really was worth the drive just to get to hang out with my best friend and her family. thanks for the congrats. still can’t believe that i’ve posted 100 times!

  2. Hi. I have a blog at where I feature people’s posts about camping, and I would like to send my readers your way. Of course I would give you credit for quotes and would link back to your site.

    Thanks for considering this,

  3. Congrats on 100!
    I am no longer jealous about your time with Seashore and Cheeseburger. All that rain and would not have been a happy camper.

    well, we did have nice sunny weather and her sis’s pool after the camping debacle, so you still have something to be jealous of 🙂
