    I have a high-maintenance wife and 4 kids, 3 of whom are in diapers.

    Forgive me if I don’t Eagle Scout this particular trip.

    lechnerd is here trying to impress us making a fire like cavemen did thousands of years ago while I'm watching a Japanese guy make polyester underwear into a deadly weapon.

    Imagine sitting in one of those rvs and all of a sudden you notice a guy sitting by the fire pit with a bow drill like he's Tom Hanks from goddamn Castaway on a deserted island.

    People do bring their RVs but moreso in the summer as it’s way too hot to sleep outside in Texas in the summer.

    Again, I’m bringing a lot of human drama with me on this trip so going primitive is not an option. I’ll Bear Grylls it in my next life while still single. It’s unfortunate I got hitched so early in life but when you are a rich doctor women throw themselves at you like you wouldn’t believe. I almost had no choice but to get married early on. And then after you get married the wife is constantly throwing herself at you hence all the kids.

    wait until he's spotted cutting down those wooden street posts (in the pic) because the green wood he brought won't burn.

    Not using the word “tandem” in describing your “3 car garage” is a little intellectually dishonest, no?

    Tandem would’ve made it more accurate but 3 car garage is still correct albeit less descriptive.

    Ok guys let’s do this!

    First things first, gotta get your camping supplies and food together. How are you going to make a fire without nourishment for your body and a campsite? Can’t do it.
