Three days without....NO WAY!

Three days without....NO WAY!


City guy decides to bow to the pressure of going camping for the May 24 weekend. Good idea right? I thought it could be fun. So me and three others head out for this fun filled weekend and arrive at a cottage that we rented (in the middle of no where) and begin to haul everything in to the cottage. Of course i decide to take a ride to the nearest Tim's about a 20 minute drive (just can't do without several cups a day). I get in the car wouldn't start (piece of junk), of course no neighbors around to give a boost. So i decided i was going to walk to Tim's as I just had to have my cup and thought, it's not that far right? It took me 3 hours to walk for my cup of coffee there and back. The next day, waking up in the morning (no coffee) and the thought of making my way to Tim's again (you can imagine), but i did. This time I thought i'd be smart and buy 12 cups of extra large to take with me, thought i could heat them up in the microwave when i got the urge, and headed back to the cottage carrying three trays for the next hour and a half walk back. The car was running upon my return as my friends flagged a car down for a boost (OMG) Next year i will ensure to rent a reliable car just in case.

C'mon man - camping is done in a tent! And next time buy a can of Tim's ground coffee, boil some water (in whatever you have) and make yourself some. Fairly palatable coffee can be brewed in a tin can and strained through some cloth (not a dirty sock ;-)

That way too, you will spend more time seeing what you went camping to see, and will appreciate your regular coffee that much more when you get home.

I'm picturing you with those 12 cups walking back to the cottage. Too funny.
