Camping Weekend: Table Mountain

By Heather

It’s been a few weeks since we’ve had a getaway. B-o-o-o-o-o.  We hit our favorite spot once again: Table Mountain and Steve nabbed our favorite site!

There were SNAFUs, but we made the best of them: Broken tent pole, busted can opener, a hole in the tent wall, a forecast for temps in the 90s that was wildly off and… rain!

This weekend also turned out to be the farewell performance for our first tent, which finally crapped out after serving us well for more than three years. Steve gifted us his old tent, which he will be replacing with something smaller and lighter for a road trip this month. It’s a pretty sweet tent, and we can’t wait to tell you all about it!

I spent time bundled up in the tent reading about North Korea.

We made grilled corn on the cob.


And California had a freak rainstorm. Where did that come from?!
