Camping the Studer Way

About a week ago the forecast for Memorial Day weekend was sunny and mid-70s. Perfect! Once we realized we both had a three day weekend and that it would be our last three day weekend before we have a newborn, we decided to go camping. Well... the Studer way of camping, as Davin informed me last time, is that it always rains! (Unless we join a group of other people in which case the curse of rain seems to be overruled.) A few years ago we camped out at Beacon Rock and nearly called it quits in the middle of the night because it was raining so hard that our drenched tent was starting to leak. I told him next time we need to camp my way... in the sun! As soon as we planned to go camping this weekend, the weatherman started changing his story. What? Now the forecast is for rain and upper-60s! Unfortunately, I too, am a Studer and I guess that means I cannot escape the camping curse of rain. If we cancel our trip I'm sure the forecast will change back to sun, but if we're going it's going to rain. Sorry, guys, we're going! So if you're joining us in the great outdoors this weekend, be sure to bring a tarp!

That is awful brave of you! Not you, Davin...Melissa, you're the brave one!
