You’ve waited and it’s finally here! It’s Memorial Day weekend! You get a day off and you’re going to use it for your annual camping trip. You’re not looking forward to the sun and bugs, but you are totally ready for those selfies in nature. Your Instagram feed is looking neutral and the vibrant green trees are going to show your followers just how vibrant you are inside. You will be recognized as the modern-day Alexander Supertramp!
But first you must pack. That’s not going to be simple. Where’s the new tent you bought? It had a snazzy bag carrier that took forever to pull it out from. Then, you had to put it back in. Two hours and two breakdown-sessions later, you got it in. Good times. It wouldn’t fit in your closet, so you threw it under your porch. You should check there. Let’s hope the bag isn’t ruined with filth and dust. Are the poles and stakes there too?
Then you must find the rest of your equipment thrown about the house. First, track down the heavy-duty flashlight. Remember, you used it when your lights went off and you couldn’t find the house flashlight? Maybe it’s under the bed. But more importantly, where are the sleeping bags? You haven’t seen those in months! Wait, didn’t you have to buy extra blankets and pillows, too?
You also need to take a trip to Uncle Joe’s. He has your pop-up chairs in his garage. He let your aunt borrow the extra tarp though, so you’ll need to swing by her place too. (Why did they have to divorce….) Do you have enough time to do all that? You still need to double-check on things you forgot last time like lanterns, and extra storage bins for trash and snacks. We all know California is known for its bears.
Who knew camping could take so much preparation!? Did Alexander Supertramp need to go through this? All you want to do is sit back and take selfies while keeping our fallen soldiers in mind. You have the perfect caption ready for a Memorial Day post, drawing on the nature around you and military appreciation. Think of all the likes! Everyone will see how thoughtful you are. Maybe someone will even write a book about you!
