Call it The Rainmaker

We were out camping over the weekend, and it was a brutally soggy experience. Here’s a look at our campsite. This was a weekend trip with our friends the Lesters, who were testing out their shiny new tent. You can see it behind our camper, underneath a tarp:

I’ll share more in the next day or two from the trip. For now, I’ll mention three important facts:

1 – Weather reports by the end of the weekend estimated that the area in which we were camping received 5″ (12.5cm) of rain between Saturday morning and Sunday night.

2 – The Lesters, suffering many leaks in their new tent, packed up and took the kids home at midnight Saturday night, arriving home on Sunday morning at 2:00 a.m.

3 – Chelsea and I have decided that the trailer will be called The Rainmaker, and we will make money by taking it to drought-stricken farms and setting up camp.

If you know a farmer who needs help with the rain, let us know.

Notice the umbrellas by the door:
