My husband Jon grew up in farm country in Wisconsin and as a kid the only vacations his family ever took were camping trips. (He was also an Eagle scout, but that's another story.) We camped a little when we were dating and early in our marriage but after Karis came along, we didn't go at all. To be honest, I'm not much of a camper, but if the campground has indoor restrooms I can make the best of it for Jon's sake. For years he has admired camping trailers and pop-up campers, even "window shopping" at the local RV dealerships for fun. A month or so ago I told him that it was time for him to just bite the bullet and buy a pop-up camper. Karis and Quinn are old enough now to enjoy camping, and we can take some weekend trips for very little money if we're towing around our own lodging. After weeks of watching Craigslist and the newspaper, he finally found one that fit his budget. Today we had it delivered to our friends' home, where it will be stored when we're not using it. Jon is so excited he can barely stand it! I'm sure that very soon he will start researching nearby campgrounds so we can break it in.
