I finally figured out why my husband hates camping - he's never had a good experience if it involved a tent, trailer or motorhome. A short list of DHs and his families camping mis-adventures: - DH was 4 at the time and his parents took him tent camping. He woke up screaming in the middle of the night. Something had either bitten or stung him and he was swelling up badly. Whatever it was, it left two marks and required a trip to the ER. - Another trip, this time in a pop-up, BIL (3 at the time) woke up in the middle of the night screaming of course - and they couldn't find him! He'd rolled right out of the pop-up and was on the ground outside of the camper. - FIL, while parking his motorhome at a craft festival somehow managed to run over himself with the motorhome. - Another motorhome and another craft show. DH (14 at the time) had to run back to the motorhome to use the facilities. Didn't quite make it and forever associates that bad memory with camping. - Several years ago FIL was driving the motorhome back from a craft show when a wheel went flying off the thing. I kind of get why he may be a little cautious about joining the kids and me on our camping trips and I'd rather not take any chances with bringing him along. Apparently, my DH is cursed!
