“Pregnancy Problems” by Deborah Ray

In the summer of 1980 my husband and I went camping with several of our friends. They all had tent trailers but this being our first camping experience we only had a tent.

We had two children, Jerrine, 2 and Keath, 11 months. I was pregnant with our third child. Jerrine was being potty trained so we had her little porta potty in the tent.

The next morning when we woke up I really had to go pee bad. For those of you who have been pregnant you know how that is. Well, instead of going out to one of the camp out bathrooms, I used Jerrine's porta potty.

Jerrine let out with a blood piercing scream "NO MOMMY! Get off my toilet mommy! Stop mommy! That's my potty!"

After she stopped screaming all we could hear were our friends and other people in the campground laughing. Needless to say our next camping experience we bought a tent trailer with my own potty. :-)

“The Very Bad Camping Trip” by Mr. B
On September 26th, 2012, my wife and I set off for a camping trip to Wenatchee. Little did we know, it would turn into one of those trips where everything went wrong.


There had been fires in Wenatchee at the time and entire hillsides had burned up, trees and all. The air was very smoky. But we had already reserved the campsite, so we decided to go anyway. We got a late start, but finally we were on the road. Unfortunately, we got lost and couldn’t find the campgrounds for maybe half an hour.


Finally, we arrived! ...only to realize, as we set up camp, that I had forgotten the tent poles. So we went to the store and had to buy a brand new tent. We looked into buying just the poles but it ended up being more affordable just to buy the whole package, tent and all.


While we were out, we bought hot dogs and wood for a campfire and some dinner.  We drove back to the campgrounds just in time to see them posting a burn-ban sign, due to all the wild fires. So we would not be having a campfire nor a camping dinner. We went back into town and ate at a restaurant instead.


After dinner, we returned to our campsite and set up our brand new tent. It was smaller than we’d realized. …much smaller. In fact, it was so small we couldn’t fit the air mattress inside. Our only method of inflating the mattress was by an inflator that was powered from our car charger, outside the tent--so we had to partly deflate the air mattress just to fit it through the tent door and zip up the flap.


Finally, we could go to sleep. And we did! Until about midnight when we realized our air mattress had a leak and we were now lying on the ground. So we dragged it out, hooked it back up to the car charger, filled it with air, and squeezed it back into the tent. Only this time we had filled it too full of air and we couldn’t close the zipper flap.


Then we found a spider in the tent.


We got him out and tried rotating the mattress to close the door. That failed. So we decided to just deal with it. We slept with the bottom part of the flap open and my feet were sticking out of the tent.


Around 3:00am we awoke to find the mattress had lost air again. We gave up, emptied it completely, and slept on the ground.


The next morning, we’d had just about enough of the bad camping trip, so we started cleaning up to head home. And as we were packing the car, somehow, both sets of keys got locked inside. We were stranded. I called my parents and they had to drive an hour to unlock the car for us with a spare key from our house.


So, all-in-all, the camping trip was a failure. It did have one upside though. We ate at a nice restaurant for dinner the night they had posted the burn ban. That was the one “happy” event from our trip. But hey, at least we made some memories.

Today it was a service-pig-in-training.
