I never really cared for camping, however after our divorce, someone had to go with our young sons.
They truly loved to go fishing and camping by the lake, so I volunteered to take them for a weekend.
I bought a nice tent, and since one of our pet peeves of camping was having to sleep on the ground, I also bought an air mattress. It was sizzling and humid that night, and I was praying I had bought a small portable air conditioner. I didn’t expect the air mattress to be a source for heat. As the night wore on, I ended up with our youngest son kneeling on the mattress along with me. Next thing I knew, I had our older son on the mattress. As if I hadn’t already been minding the high heat, I was now surrounded by two teenagers who both emitted their own form of natural heating. I crawled out of bed and headed outside. The teenagers didn’t even know I had escaped the tent. It was so humid outside that I could barely breathe. I crept into the motorcar and turned on the engine. I then turned on the air conditioner. It didn’t take too long for the motorcar to become cool, thanks to the excellent Heating and Air Conditioning system in the car. I wasn’t quite sure I wanted to splurge and have automatic temperature control, when I bought the car, however I was now so ecstatic I did. The Heating and Air Conditioning system automatically adjusted for the inside of the car, to go with the heat and humidity of outside. It didn’t take long before I had two rather tired teenagers climbing into the motorcar with me. My youngest mumbled something about leaving them by themselves and not asking them to join me in the AC.
