when we got to the cabin, i was pleasantly surprised; it was bigger than i thought. it took his uncle and his brother 3 years to build it. there's a nice big porch, a living/kitchen area on the main floor, and an open upstairs with about 6 beds. we had s'mores, burgers, open fire cooked wings, potatoes, you know, the usual. they all enjoyed doing things like fishing and swimming in the lake. i was down for neither. plus, the weather was not fantastic. it was a little cool and i was in pants and a sweater the entire time. come sunday, i just couldn't do another day. i needed toilets, i needed clean running water to wash my hands (not lake water siphoned in), i needed electricity, and no bugs! around 1pm, we took an atv ride back to our car and back to civilization. the first stop was obviously starbucks, though we were driving for an hour before we got to one ;)
7am, not sure if i'm ready.
looking good for the ride through the forest.
off we go!
and we've arrived.
their dog looking ever so regal. and the outhouse in the back.
the best part of camping.
here's a little video which was put together using the vine app clips i took. meaning, the quality is horrible and it's quick 6 second clips!
i'm glad i went and experienced this, but it's not for me. i'll stick to fully equipped cottages and a night or two of camping on campgrounds, because at least there are washrooms! but you know, i tried.
