Default camping trip

I went to camp with my best freind and her two female cats, whitter and Flicka, guarded our tents all night long.

Long time ago we went camping to the Thousand Islands. On the drive there we heard a news report about some campers whose tent was struck by lightning. It killed 2 or three sleeping in the tent. Well that night a lightning storm hit the our camp site. Can you blame us for sleeping in the truck!

Gee, I can think of many a time while in the Army that we FTX'd. That'* camping in your terms. Many times it was colder than a witches tit in a brass bra. Guys would make fun of me for carrying around a bottle of zippo lighter fluid. Aint nothing like sitting on a 10degree porta-jon seat. Well, I fixed that problem, squirt lighter fluid onto the seat, set afire, wait a minute or two, let the flames go out, and voila! A warm and sterile seat to sit on.

**True Story**

One time while camping at Darien Lakes Amusment park (now a six flags park). My girlfriend and I were in an especially festive mood, I had proposed to her just a few hours earlier. We were all sitting around the campfire drinking down some brew, joking, telling stories...it was about midnight. and the topic turned toward a movie we all just saw; Predator. Well the joker of the group insisted that they were real and that he could 'see' one up high in the trees and that it was eyeing me; probably because it wouldn't mind a nice porkchop for the ride home when all of the sudden a huge black thing, about 5 ft long, dropped from the tree and landed right on top of me/in my lap, collapsing the lawn chair I was sitting in, and ended up in a tangle on the damp ground.

Just about everyone screamed or wet themselves; I think I did both LOL.

I wresteld the beast off of me and threw towards the fire almost instantly; and quickly got to my feet; ready to run away, when everyone started laughing and laughhing.

It turned out that I was attacked by a rotten tree branch , about a foot thick, that just happened to fall at just the perfect time. Looking back, I could have been killed. The trunk part landed just betweenj my legs and broke the lawnchair, another foot and it could have been my head, another inch or so and it could have ruined the honeymoon...

Who said God doesn't have a sense of humor? We all still laugh about that.

LOL Went once to one in the Rocky Mountain National Forest and we all sat in our tents and quivered while a Brown Bear rifled through our groceries we took 2.5 miles with a 1600 vertical climb as well. Lucky they couldnt get the beer open, as 2 short straws out of six hiked down to get replacements. Yes I was holding the straws and cheated. Are you old enuff to sit in the lounge Katie. Everybody put out the cigs and watch the language please

Went camping in PA once - left the garbage bag hanging on the tent - big mistake. About midnight I hear a rustling - right near my head! I peak out to see a skunk trying to get into the garbage bag. My husband had the bright idea to bang on the tent to scare it away...I was freaking out; imaging how bad it would smell if it sprayed us - luckily it didn't - but it did take a long time before it left.

As for me.. Tent-camping a couple years ago, along the same lines..but a coon.

Left our dinner on the table (smart..?) and then a few hours later, heard the usual rustling.

Everyone knows where this is going..

Ended by me taking out my mag-lite and just flashing the thing with it and it running off.

/weak story

i tried LOL
