On Friday morning we packed up and headed out on the 1st Annual Zoom Camping trip. The seasoned campers were were efficiently packed with all the necessary camping gear. Others were still wondering exactly how exactly the lack of room service, not to mention electricity, was going to work. Still others worried about the weather — when we reserved the sites back in January we were picturing the August weather a little bit differently. But every last one of us was excited for the adventure and hilarity that was sure to ensue.
We lucked out with the weather, sure it could have been a little warmer, but we didn’t see a single drop of rain. We ate like kings and queens and even had our own floating island. We also learned a thing or two. Kris taught us that the water in the lake is wet! Who knew? Thanks to Eva we realized that when laughing uncontrollably while laying on a floating island in the middle of a lake, its best to keep hold of a handle. Kurtis demonstrated exactly why half shirts went out of style. June and Lisa informed us that camping is dirty. And Tim taught us that short ribs are even better when cooked over the fire in the wilderness. But most importantly, we learned that with a group of Zoomers working together, we can accomplish anything!
