camping

Truck camping, (pickup truck with camper attached) was surely invented to maintain parental sanity during ambitiously long family trips and was my parent’s chosen method of vacationing.  Separated by two layers of heavy glass with only walkie talkies to connect parent and child, my parents, in their wisdom, always ‘forgot’ to turn theirs on.   And with this absence of a tattletale device, a microcosm of a sibling version of Lord of the Flies would always exist in the camper.   As such, I spent a good deal of each camping trip locked in the camper’s tiny bathroom, where I would stand on top of the porta pottie, watch the American west roll by from the tiny window and tell myself stories.
