Should I Stay or Should I Go?

Our first camping trip of the fall season is scheduled for this weekend at Huntsville State Park.  But as we get closer and closer (and I get more and more excited) it seems we keep hitting road bumps.

RDB got stung by hornets last weekend doing yard work, and now his foot/ankle/calf and wrist/forearm/elbow mimic those of Popeye, but with swelling rather than spinach-induced muscle.

I 'threw my back out' over at a friend's house.  Clarification: while sitting over at a friend's house.  And I am way too young to use a phrase like "threw my back out." Blah.

And, then there's this:

When I looked yesterday, it was only a 40 percent chance of rain, so that's not moving in the right direction either - much like RDB's swelling appendages and my stiffly unmoving back.

So, should we stay or should we go?

I'm trying, at least a little bit, to look on the bright side: there's a 40% chance of great weather this weekend.

And, it is only Tuesday.


  1. Ouch! That's a tough one. It would be hard to enjoy camping if your in pain, he's in pain (did I get that right) and on top of all that your cooped up because of rain and can't stretch those sore muscles...

    Dang... That is a tough call to make.

    1. Well, it ws up to 80% chance of rain Friday night, so we didn't end up going. And kinda glad - its' been raining off and on all day here in Houston, wouldn't have been much better an hour north.
