Of course remember that I'm the kind of guy that takes in stray animals
I too am that kind of guy and have great sympathy for Ms. Amy. Poor girl.

I admit that weekend camping trips, the unpacking after a trip, and then repacking for the next trip, seriously interferes with some maintenance duties around home. Specifically, my yard and garden regularly get neglected when compared to my non-camping neighbors. Summer goes by too fast to miss out on any opportunity to take load the family up and hit the road. Other things can wait.

I've long said- if it's nice enough for yard work, it's nice enough for either camping or kayaking!

Now I put down sod and *have* to maintain it. :-(

When I first started RVing, I had panic attacks before driving the RV. That's cuz I had no place to park the RV at my home, I had to rent a space. I would have panic attacks over backing the RV out of the space. And I would have panic attacks over parking it back in the space when I got home.

Ok, twice when backing out my RV from the rented space, I did hit a support pole. Ripped off my slide out awning. those things are $600 to replace!

Now I do have a place to keep my RV at my current home. So, no more renting RV storage slots.

I don't get the panic attacks any more. I just tell myself, "I'm only driving a pickup truck" (I have a Class C, Class A's scare me!) and I don't look at the EXPANSE of what is behind me when I drive.

I didn't have a backup camera until my 3rd RV. Couldn't see out the back window when slides were in. PANIC! I learned to use the camera.

And that is why we leave the hubby's at home while us gals are off somewhere camping and they can mow around the camper's parking spot before we get home.

I admit that after a camping trip, I take everything out of the storage bins and. Reorganize my stuff just so I can spend a few hours in the sun doing some driveway drinking.

I secretly confess that this was my first attempt at making a moon pie (this was bread and apple pie filling) and I had no idea how long to leave it in for!

If all else fails, read the instructions.
