More On Camp

Posted by LBinON , 22 August 2012 · 70 views

Now that I have rambled on about the best part of camp I figure I should share a little of the not so good parts. Not that there were a lot of bad parts, in fact it was quite the opposite, but there were a few. The first night I was feeling a little edgy about being there and worried about how I was going to be able to handle everything, and that night I saw a shadow the wrong way, it was a tree, but when I saw that shadow out of the corner of my eye, I must have jumped a good two feet in the air, I screamed, and my breathing rate went in to hyper-drive.

I had a few nightmares each night but no screamers, and the sleeping pills helped a lot so that part went a lot better that I had worried about. Really most of the stuff I had worried over was non issues while I was there. The only real issue was the night I unexpectedly found myself alone at twilight looking ahead on the path into a solid wall of darkness caused by the trees overhead blocking the light. Now this would have been alright had I have had my flashlight but no, I hadnít thought that far ahead. So end result was a flash back of terror that had me hyperventilating and shaking for the better part of an hour. But even that past fairly quickly. So I did ok. All and all it went better than I feared. And other than those two incidences, and the side effect of too much adrenalin (meaning everything I could smell for most of the weekend was intensified), I think it went pretty well. After all whatís the smell of 1000 sweat socks between friends any way.
