So Dee and I left on time. Stopped and had a nice lunch at a brewery and bought a to go "Growler of Beer". Then the heavens opened and it POURS rain. We had checked the forecast, this was not supposed to happen. So we find a hotel and decide to go back in the morning.
This morning we get up, and 10 miles from the campsite we get a flat tire. No cell phone reception. Finally a cop comes by. They call us a tow truck. While the tow driver is helping us a guy in a big white truck with the the license plate REDNIK pulls up. The tow driver was very protective of us which was nice but yeah a little freaky. Then he tells us that even though the camping trip has sucked thus far, at least the dogwoods are blooming. This is a strange sentence to hear from a guy with too much shoulder length hair and not enough teeth.
We get to the campsite, finally, only to discover it snowed overnight. But, the sky is clear and we decide to set up. We set up, and it starts HAILING. HAILING. 3 hours later the sky is clear again and we decide to go buy some firewood to see if we can start a fire. We come out of the tent and there is a couple standing in the middle of our campsite looking confused. Well, evidently we were in the wrong campsite (the name wasn't on the sign and we took a wrong turn). The couple wouldn't trade with us. SO, we packed up in the mud and went home.
