My wife and I recently spent four days camping with our church youth group. My wife was in charge of all the meals including purchasing the groceries, food preparation (slicing, dicing, etc), cooking and clean up. I helped with getting camp set up, organizing youth activities, leading activities, tending the campfire and all the other activities needed to keep a camp of 27 people from being a chaotic mess. Organizing camp and cooking for 18 young people definitely qualifies for an adventure in RVing by itself, but there was more adventure awaiting us. After lights out (midnight) the first night, high winds began blowing through the area toppling tent poles, blowing camp gear (chairs, tablecloths, etc.) around and shaking the RVs. Flapping tent flies and roof vents prevented anyone from having a good night’s sleep. Not only did the wind blow the first night, but the second and third night, too. By the last evening everything in camp was either tied down or weighted down. Good thing I brought several long lengths of twine.
Wind or no wind, you can’t go wrong sharing the Gospel or camping with a youth. Camping with a bunch of teenagers in high winds rates as a double adventure in RVing!
