I'm officially a camper!

We attended GHAGAFAP on the weekend. It stands for Golden Horseshoe Area Geocachers Annual Family Picnic. It involved two nights camping and two days of awesome geocaching activities. It just so happened that it was also our 1000th geocache which was cause for celebration.

I am NOT a camper. There are many events like this one held all over and our geocaching friends were desperately trying to make me happy so that Joe and I would attend more of these events. When we arrived at the campground, our friends had set up a mammoth tent for us complete with a full size blow up inflatable bed. It was awesome. Our tent was referred to as the "Hilton Suite" for the remainder of the weekend.

When asked if I would do it again, I had to say yes. The actual camping was fun. It's the packing to get there and the unpacking and laundry once we got home that I absolutely hate.

Here's Joe and I in all our geocaching glory:

Please please please excuse the terrible hair!

I can't wait to get back to getting crafty again. I am making some cards tonight with some fabric sqares I recently purchased on Ebay. I'm finding that the evenings aren't long enough for me to jump into any major projects. I think about all I'm up to at the moment is cards, but I have SO many ideas brewing. I think that Joe is going away canoeing on Thanksgiving Weekend, so I will get some real quality crafty time then.

I have to ask, what is geocoaching?
I think I could like camping like that.

Camping! In the Hilton Suite! Well, sounds fun and comfy.

What sweet friends to set up a big tent for you! Yeah, if someone else set up camp, I could go camping more often as well. But then, I'd want someone to help me do the laundry at home too. Now THAT I could really like.
