These are pics of our first camping trip. Rugby and I went to Huntsville State Park. We had a peaceful time and became one with nature, sort of, well as close to nature
as we wanted to get. I'm not a fan of flies or heat or chiggers, and Rugby didn't appreciate the resident squirrel stealing her dog food. But, it was fun to get away. We're going on more camping trips in the future. Maybe
Martin Dies State Park will be next.
Somethings I learned and will use this knowledge on future trips. (1) Bring a shovel, so I don't have to pick up Rugby's poop with
paper towels. As you probably know, poop is warm and icky, and I'm not a big fan. Who is, right? (2) Bring a broom to sweep off the concrete platform that picnic tables are sat upon. (3) Buy a longer leash for Rugby so I don't have to
continually tie and untie her when I move about the camp. (4) Buy a dog stake that rotates so that Rugs doesn't get twirled around a stationary stake, thus choking herself. Much like her keeper, she's not real bright at times. (5)
Reserve a campsite with a stand up grill on a pole, so I don't have to prepare burgers on my Coleman stove.
I learned other stuff, but I don't remember it, which won't
be of any help to me in the future.
