This is the JMS contributors setting up tent
This is the JM contributors moving the tent to a new location--better breezes and closer to all the fun
This is the view I was able to get of the gas pump--blonde and all
Sometimes the views were a little on the slant or out of focus..or is that just the photographer
Another one at the camp site by the red bus--the Pfarkels did not sleep in the tent with the other 6!

Since I was working, ahem, and didn't have any photos of this tenting fiasco, I sure am enjoying seeing how silly we truly did look carrying our tent across the campsite. However, putting together the tent was way more challenging. Some male must of written the directions and they had the colors all messed up in the directions. Women are wayyyy to detailed to be making that kind of mistake. lol Now, wait a minute. It was 6 woman that forgot basic necessities for camping, so maybe it was a lady writing the tent directions. ha!
Thanks from the bottom of my heart for sharing your camp ground, your advice, your campfire, your steak knives, your picnic table, your grill, your refrigerator, your sense of humor. Did I forget anything?
You girls rock! Posted: 7:27 pm on August 19th

It was a fun camping experience (seriously). But like Kathy said, next year we'll be set-up by you in an Airstream! So no switching campsites, K? Thanks for an amazing time!

shabbychick writes: Well, all I can say is - and being very truthful...THE PFARKEL SISTERS SAVED OUR SORRY CAMPER BEHINDS - seriously! (I guess you could say we were just a tad "high maintenance" being the "experienced" campers we are...ha ha). I really think we had just one thing on our minds when we set out that morning (a bit behind our anticipated 7:00am departure time...wink wink) - and it was nothing but JUNKING! But - at least we remembered the tent and sleeping bags!

Setting up the tent was big fun - and I believe there is a photo circulating (thanks to our dear "tweet" Candy) that refers to how many JMS girls, Pfarkel sisters AND Tomboy Tool gal does it take to set up a tent? You don't want to know...

The Pfarkels are amazing - SO much fun...and we even got a peek inside the big camper - love the flamingos ladies!!

Note to my fellow JMS contributors...Next year we'll be alongside the Pfarkels in our "Airstream"! :)

Hugs from Ohio! Kathy

suewhitney writes: Ah, hahahahahahahaha! We are such great campers. We didn't need a lick of help from anyone.The way I remember it is our fire was roaring, our tent was pitched perfectly (the first time), and we were as well prepared as Eagle Scouts. Oh wait! Maybe I'm thinking of another group of campers. Hmmm.... Note to self, never give a camera to one of the Pfarkel sisters. Thanks for the rear view!! Thanks ladies! You're awesome. I wouldn't want to camp next to anyone else, for so many obvious reasons If you should try to find another campground next year, we'll find you...seriously!

Big Hugs,
