For All In Tents And Purposes, We Are Done!

With tents, that is! We just went on an overnight camping trip. We needed to get away and we haven't been camping for a while. We went to Lost Dutchman Mine State Park in Apache Junction, AZ. It is a beautiful park located just outside Phoenix.

We spent an hour trying to get our tent set up. It was over 100 heat index and we were sweating and fighting heat exhaustion. This was only the second time we had set up the tent and I sure didn't remember what a pain it was from last time! It was crazy.

We kept saying over and over, we wished we had an RV already. This trip really helped fuel the fire on getting one sooner rather than later.

Here is the little sucker:

And here is a picture of our view:

As always, we had a wonderful time exploring, enjoying the area and sitting by the campfire talking and dreaming. We are very ready to make this our permanent lifestyle.
