Family Camp = Relaxation

...attended a church Family Camp over the last 2 weeks or so. This time, we had a little cabin, even though I sneaked to the VW bunk whenever I could. It was good to get away...I don't think I looked at a computer screen for a whole week, maybe longer. Both the morning bible teaching sessions and the evening services were of great benefit to my tiresome mortal coil. Sometimes, I shun the concept of "retreating" or "getting away", but it does have its benefits. All things in moderation...
The "cabin" needs work, to say the least, but our 2 sons enjoyed it anyhow. Of course they went armed with a PS3 for "rainy days" etc. I think they enjoyed the freedom, late nights, lots of friends...
Most cooking was done on a "Powerfist" one burner butane stove, Chicken Stir-fry for example...
 Of course packing up to leave was interesting. Over the 2 weeks, both myself and Debbie made a couple of trips back and forth from home to camp, with work schedules and the like. That meant that the amount of "stuff" was slyly increasing. After Debbie left with a load, The Vanagon managed to swallow the rest; toaster oven, futon, roll-away cot, 2 coolers, and on it goes. I even had room for an offspring, but not two...looking forward to next year :)
