It should also not be surprising to read that our most recent camping trip involved a damaged trailer tire, an epic battle with a nest of angry wasps, and a fresh water tank filled with water that could not in any way be described as fresh. And it probably wouldn’t surprise you to learn that all of those things occurred before we even pulled out of our own driveway.
