So I got online to see if we could do something. Anything. Maybe go camping? Camping can be cheap.
Most of the camping places with websites had filled up. I guess most people plan ahead for their vacations. There was a KOA available, but not where I really wanted to go. This left flying by the seat of our pants and finding a campsite in the Olympic National Park. It is first come- first served, and $12 a night. Hopefully we could get there early enough to get a spot.
When Ryan got home, I showed him what I'd found. He was game. So Thursday was spent trying to find the boxes with our warm coats and camping gear in the piles of taped up boxes, and a trip to the grocery store for everything else.
It ended up being a really fun trip. For $12 a night, we got a fire pit, a place for our gargantuan tent (it's for 10 people, so there's room for four squirmy children, two adults, and a pile of gear), and flushing toilets. No showers, but I can manage camping with flushing toilets for a couple of nights.
Pictures to come.
