We finally went camping! We’ve been talking about going for pretty much the entire two years we’ve known each other and finally made it out to O’Neill Regional Park for a weekend camping trip. The weather was perfect and it actually got pretty cold at night! I don’t remember sleeping bags being such a tight fit, so I think we’ll be bringing regular sheets and blankets for our air mattress next time…and we need to find a better pump. Ours died before the mattress was even close to full! John was a little light-headed the first night!
We went on a hike before leaving on Sunday. We thought the 5.3 mile length was round-trip. We realized it was just one way, so we hiked out to the 2-mile marker and then turned around and walked back.
I actually had a really great time camping and am looking forward to going again soon. Since we live in Southern California, we can go almost year-round without worrying about extreme temperatures. We’re going to try to plan our next trip for November or early December.
