Huh, Whaddya Know?

I guess we should have paid closer attention......


Because then I wouldn't have ended up like this...

Should've at least waited until the sun went down, though.

  5. Hahahahaha this is incredible Al, if you'd paid more attention I think the no alcohol thing might have put you off booking, at least you had fun buddy, even if the day after might not have been such fun!

    1. I'm not sure we were supposed to pee against trees, either.

  6. I did a little research on this campground and it looks like you should have got in for free!
    Pursuant to page 5 of the:
    STATE OF RHODE ISLAND AND PROVIDENCE PLANTATIONS
    DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT
    Division of Parks and Recreation
    USER FEES AT STATE BEACHES, PARKS, AND RECREATIONAL
    AREAS

    • No fee shall be charged any person with a disability regardless of age, or to automobiles
    transporting a non-driver with a disability at any recreational facility owned and operated by the
    state, provided, however, proper identification is presented as prescribed by the Department of
    Environmental Management.

    I knew it would come in handy for you eventually!

    1. So THAT'S why my brother kept telling me to cut my leg off! BTW I find it interesting that your input lists Rhode Island's FULL name. Most people don't know that.

  7. HA! That is a good one!
    I was thinking that maybe it was just a pup tent...

    1. It's a five man tent I bought when the kids were little. Now it's just me. I got lost in the thing!

  8. Zipping it up with your feet still out. Getting drunk brings out hidden talents.

  11. I can't really see what you ended up like. It all depends who or what you're lying on.

    1. No. It was Grog Lite. In cans.
      Many, many cans.

  13. Or you could have found clever ways to sneak your alcohol into the park anyways.

  14. We smuggled it in by drinking it.

  15. Good effort Mr P but with planking you are supposed to... oh wait... you thought it was plonking right? (Am really hoping you get the pun in plonking - a double pun at that! Maybe it's an Aussie thing).

    1. We generally wait until the sun goes down before we plank. That IS a euphemism, right?

  16. When you're camping you're allowed to start drinking as soon as you wake up. Also, because glass is heavy, all liquor should be transferred to empty soda bottles.

    1. I'm so glad that we brought cans. Bottles make a suspiciously loud CLANK. Plus, we kept our cooler behind the tent. Although, from the look of all those red Solo cups, I don't think we were the only ones who didn't read the fine print.

  17. You're smart, Al. This way, you're ready to run when you fart.

    1. By the third day, I must admit that I couldn't fart with confidence.

  18. Ha! Now that's funny! Looks like our annual family camping get together! Where there's a LOT of alcohol! ;)

  19. Looks like an awesome time to me :))

  20. I once got kicked out of a campsite for drinking. That's a stupid rule anyway.

    Oh... And church too. It's not BYOW by the way. You have to wait for the Jesus cracker like everyone else.

    Hugs!

    1. My brother said he got kicked out of that same campsite for the same reason in the early 80s. The pot they were smoking may have had something to do with it, too.
      Speaking of church, I remember back in the 80s (apparently, the Devil's Decade), when I smuggled little Miller pony bottles in my coat for Midnight Mass.
      I think Sister Caligula got wise to us, though, when we started giggling during "Oh Come, All Ye Faithful."

  21. That sign is, I suspect, only intended to inspire people to pretend they are sober instead of drinking each other under the table. It's a subtle difference but it does indeed create a more peaceful environment.

    1. Seriously, I really think it's a "Cover Your Ass" for the park. I'm sure they couldn't care one way or the other, but if you're causing a ruckus, they have it in writing that they can toss your drunk butts out. I'm confident they wouldn't be too concerned about a group of 50-somethings sitting around the fire with Bud Lite in red Solo cups.

  22. I think you gonna need a bigger tent.

  23. This cheers me up as me son went camping with his friends for a long concert weekend! I'll be happy if he comes home with his shoes.
