And let me tell you, if I didn't want to go camping before, which I didn't, then cleaning a tarp and hanging it to dry on a makeshift clothesline would have definitely turned me off the whole process. The shepherd's crook I bought was not up to the task of carry the weight without bending. And it turns out I never learned to tie a convincing knot, so, jury-rigging a rope-and-rake system to hold the line was an exciting adventure in ugh.
But, job be half-done. Now to the rest of the engulfing weekend chores list.
* - If you didn't get an invite, and you want to swing by, by all means! Just drop me a note for details.
