Every year there is a group of us from our university days that gathers for a reunion camping trip. Honestly, I absolutely savor most aspects of it. I think it is pretty amazing that all of us have been able to stay in touch over the years! The bond that a person makes in university is huge and I hate losing more of our lives as all of us adjust to the adult world. So, these camping excursions are usually pretty fun. The two of us will rent a handful of cheap cottages by the lake. This way if people want to camp in tents they can do so, or they can hang in the minimal comfort of the cottages. I say minimal since they don’t have powder rooms. You still have to go down the road to the shower house. However, there is no such thing as a cooling system in the woods. It isn’t usually that bad. But, lately, the weather has been getting crazy with unpredictable heatwaves a single after the other! The ceiling fans that they have in the cottage don’t do any good. So, this year, I rented a portable window box unit. I was worried that I was going to get teased relentlessly for it, even though I didn’t care that much. If there was anything I disliked, it was not being able to sleep due to heat! Well, let me tell you, this summer we had one of the worst summertime heat waves on record. And, when I pulled out our portable cooling system from the trunk, not a single person was laughing at me! Soon, everybody wanted to be in our cottage!
