The Agenda for Friday, July 22, 2016

A 1988 Starcraft Starmaster. My wife grew up camping in one of these nifty pop-ups, and two hand-me-down exchanges later, our kids are experiencing the great outdoors in the very same trailer. We think that’s excellent. In fact, we just returned from a wonderful weekend spent living in our Starcraft among the pines of central Ohio.
I can trace the extent of my childhood camping experiences to a week spent at The Ashokan Center in the Catskill Mountains of New York during my 6th grade year. Yeah, because pre-teens don’t feel awkward enough. Why not send them to the boonies, where they’ll prepare their own meals and opportunities to shower are few?
Anyway, in the words of comedian Jim Gaffigan, “I’m what you’d call indoorsy.” (Check the video below for more of Jim’s take on vacationing in the wilderness.)
Well, I was indoorsy until I met my wife and her family, a group of brave souls who’ve been adventuring in their pop-up campers for many, many years. One family’s even toting a 1964 Apache pop-up. (I spent way too long trying to think of an appropriate pop culture reference to include here.)
Yes, ask any of them, and I think they’ll tell you I’m becoming a full-fledged happy camper.
I know our boys are.
