In case you were thinking it’s the perfect time to go camping, remember sometimes the adventure isn’t always for the faint of heart. So if you’re going to brave the elements, make sure you’re prepared and hopefully have at least one person in the party who knows how the Hell to handle themselves in the great outdoors.
It was the year of the cicadas around DC. We woke up in the morning to find that the ceiling of our tent looked black and no light was coming through – all because of cicada bodies that had piled up on top. The ground was covered in them and they smelled terrible.
The bathroom facilities (yes, this was middle school girl scout camping, our campground had toilets and showers), had like 5 inches of cicada corpse piled up against one of the walls because the floor was slanted.
The whole experience was nasty, smelly, noisy and crunchy. —archaeob
