Jon Wants To Know – Why Is Camping In An RV Not Camping?

Leslie and I were talking about this on the morning show today and I fail to see what the problem is. I might have mentioned a couple of times that we are going camping this weekend at Lake Rudolph and I am not really looking forward to it. My idea of “roughing it” is taking a luke-warm shower at the Comfort Inn and having a refrigerator too small to chill the wine….what a nightmare!!! My wife Lisa, for whatever reason, bid on this weekend stay in an RV at Lake Rudolph as part of a fundraiser last month at Highland Elementary School. She said she thought it would be fun to which, I stuck my hand out and said, “Hi, I’m your husband Jon, have we met?”

I don’t know what possessed her to bid on something like spending a weekend with three kids in a big truck deep in the wilderness!! By the way, campground toilets……NOPE!!!!! Leslie was basically telling me to just enjoy it because camping in an RV isn’t really camping anyway. What? Deep in the woods…miles from civilization, heating up cans of Dinty Moore stew for dinner and having to protect my family from the beasts of the wild….how is THAT not camping??

Let me put this perspective, I will have no wine refrigerator, no digital cable TV, which means no DVR and NO private bathroom with a soaking tub. Well, if that’s not roughing it….I don’t know what is.

I feel like I’m stepping into the the most nightmarish episode of ‘Little House on the Prairie’ EVER!!! I just hope the bears haven’t figured out how to open the keypad lock on the RV door…it would be just my luck to be attacked by Yogi and Boo-Boo. I’m out.
