    This has happened to me a lot. Just when I’m finally beginning to enjoy something, it’s time to leave.

    We went camping the last week of July and it rained the entire time! We still had fun.

    Oh no! That reminded me of that happen. My deaf friends and I had the camping trip in Eagle Mts, north of Susanville, CA. When the rain started to pour so heavy, we rushed, grabbed and tossed everything in the bed of truck and left immediately. After a while, we drove down to Susanville, we puzzled the sky was already clear up. Weird! So we stopped by at Denny’s to eat the breakfast and then went home. But we had wonderful camping trip. :-)

    I live in the Pacific Northwest. If you don’t learn to do it in the rain, you don’t do it at all :-)

    I recall camping out in a tent like that in the rain - saw a new lake being formed - right in the middle of the tent!

    It poured rain everywhere we went on our camping honeymoon 40 years ago. On subsequent camping trips, we could almost always count on rain, so much so that we thought about advertising “fee for service” rainmaking. Set up our tent and watch the sky cloud over.

    Judging by the trees, the climate and the terrain, my guess is that they were camping somewhere in Northern Ontario. If that’s the case, rain goes with the territory! Oh well…..

    This almost seems like the opposite of that Calvin and Hobbes camping trip: it rained for a week. By the time was time to go home after given up about the rain not stopping, the rain stops. Calvin’s father is so frustrated, Calvin asks Hobbes if he understood any of Dad’s words. Hobbes says he wrote them down so they’ll find out once they’re home. Wouldn’t y’all say so?

    yes, @comixavier, that’s what i understand happened. but i am puzzled by one thing - where / how / who were they going to look up the information from anyway?

    can’t see either of calvin’s parents being willing to enlighten them, to start with…
