I’ve just twigged that I’m going camping next month. For the first time in my short, thirty-two-and-a-half years.

We’re going to a wedding, of sorts (long story). And I assumed that we’d just skip the camping part and just enjoy the outdoors during the celebration and then the comforts of a Best Western for the night.

But apparently not.

Sure, it’s only for one night. Sure, there’s a chance that there will be some human comforts available to us (most importantly, a toilet). Sure, I can take a metric tonne of Aeroguard with me.

(Aeroguard may want to consider sponsoring my trip, given my fear of bugs, creepy-crawlies, etc)

Sure, we’re going to have a lovely time in one of NSW’s finest winery areas. Sure, there will be food and booze and all the trimmings. Sure, we may sing Kumbaya  and make s’mores  around the campfire.

But, it’s camping.

And I’m terrified.

Got any tips/advice for me?

  1. Get really drunk. Then you will not even notice the lack of comforts.

    Worked for me on many camping trips when I was a teenager.

  2. When you totally get over the fact that you don’t have your entire wardrobe and bathroom cabinet on hand, camping can be kinda enjoyable. Pack light, go with the flow and enjoy the fresh air is my advice.

  3. I thought about the alcomohol! My worry about drinking was the fact that I’d need to pee more. And what if I have to pee against a tree? you buys have it so much easier than us, Ian ;)

    Sooz, you’re telling me to just get over myself, aren’t you? hehe! I’m gonna try to be cool about it and go with the flow. Haven’t lost any sleep over it (yet!)
