Memo 177: Camp Conrad – Volume 1

Can I say that I am STILL high off of this EPIC camping adventure that occurred almost three weeks ago? Because I am. I’ve never been camping before. I’ve never been on a RV. I’ve never been to Sequoia National Park or Joshua Tree National Park. There were a lot of firsts on this trip and I wouldn’t have wanted to experience them with any other group of people. So many good vibes, near death experiences and laughter. Follow me on this journey:

In LA, we picked up three RVs full of people. Three! There was a lot of risk taking involved with these RVs during the camping trip. Standing on top of this RV to get the perfect “Usie” was nothing compared to almost driving off a cliff and flying around inside during sudden stops and turns. #RIPToMeEverTakingRidingInARV #EverAgainInLife #ImOnlySerious #NextStopSequoiaNationalPark
Life. Giving.  #SequoiaNationalPark
When your photographer friend says that he wants to do something epic for his birthday, you smile, nod, study the style guide, pack a bag and GO! #NoQuestionsAsked

Everyone in this photo went to the same high school in Detroit. Correction: Everyone except for me. #MercyGirlsDoItBetter #MercyMarlins #OurMascotWasAFish #IWentToAnAllGirlsHighSchool
Contrary to what these pictures show, we were real life camping. At this point, I hadn’t had a real shower in two days #RealTalk #OverSharing #BirdBathStatus #IJustWantYouToKnowItWasReal

Beautiful Views! This was my first time camping as an adult. I can totally see why people do it. It’s so awesome to be all up in nature’s beauty BUT there were bear warnings ALL OVER THE PLACE. #IDontHaveTimeForThat #MissMeWithTheBearTalk
Oh, the sketchy places that we found along the way to Joshua Tree. Yes, a meth addict came in there trying to rob us. Yes, the guy behind the counter ran her out and threatened to call the cops. Yes, we still continued with our pizza order #WeHungry #ItWasDelicious #NoOneGotSick #WeWereMoreHungryThanScared #NextStopJoshuaTreeNationalPark
Of course, there were S’mores… and a twerk contest #WhatchaTwerkingWith #NoJudgementZone
