I don’t know how people camp regularly or alone. My family was never really big on outdoorsy vacations and I honestly can only remember camping one time growing up. Sure we would go cool places but we always had the luxury of a real bed, AC, and showers. Given that I have been competing more this year than ever before I wanted to try to find ways to cut costs. Hotels are one of the most expensive parts of shows so I decided to follow suit of some other bloggers and join the truck tent club. Admittedly I was actually really excited to get this tent. I obsessed over the purchase before finally making the investment and couldn’t wait for it to get here. Until I tried to set it up. I do not understand how a relatively successful human can struggle with something that seems to be so basic but I did.
I didn’t really set myself up for success by trying to set it up as the sun was setting by myself. After multiple frantic texts to Amanda about how I must be an actual moron I finally started to make progress before calling it quits and going to bed.
Tomorrow I will master the tent set up process… If Bobby can do it so can I! And on the bright side I only have to do it alone at one show in 2 weeks then I’ll be in the company of 2 truck tent pros for my next horse trial in October. 😉
Do the rest of you camp at shows? Only during certain seasons? Stay in your trailer?
