Sounds about right, right?
I decided after four camping adventures (Mrs. RTROSE only needed three to decide) that the whole camping thing was not the RTROSE's family's forte. I have friends and family that absolutely LOVE to camp and plan their summer vacations that way. I say go for it. Just not for us.
