*drip drip drip*

I did a lot of that the last couple weekends.  It’s been par for the course each time we’ve attempted to go camping this season; rain, humidity, more rain, more humidity, thunderstorms, more rain, wind, more rain, did I mention rain?  It’s Wisconsin, I expect the humidity, but I think I was spoiled by the loverly weather we had last summer and was disillusioned into thinking that camping might be pleasant this year.  But alas, that hasn’t been the case.    We’re fortunate enough to have a pop-up camper, so it’s not like we’re in a tent that’s about to take flight when the wind picks up, but it does get quite hot in there, even with all the windows open (which I will mention that you can’t do when it’s pouring buckets outside) and the fans going.  Over the 4th, we attempted a trip to Door Co. which resulted in much hotness and a very crabby teething baby.  The women’s showers were so packed that there was still a line to take one at 10pm, and by then the water heater was 100% empty which resulted in the most antarctic of showers I have ever taken.  I mean, Lake Michigan is warmer if that gives you any comparison.  You’d think after dripping all day it would be welcome, but it actually burned any part of me that was under it for more than 10 seconds, it was THAT cold…

So yeah, this is a whiney bitchy venty post.  I’m trying not to let it shape my views on camping in Wisconsin in summer, but I will say I’m glad we aren’t taking any more trips until September… 😉
