CampingWhat do you get when a bunch of winos go camping? I know there’s a joke there’s somewhere.

Each year, our agency takes a timeout and heads somewhere naturey for a few days of R&R. This isn’t exactly roughing it. We camp in style. Big tents, air mattresses, showers every day (for those that want them), and a whole lot of exceptional food and drink. Each night, a team is responsible for developing a menu and feeding their compadres. Over the years, this has led to a friendly competition to see who can outdo the other teams and top last year. (For the record, I won this year.)

This year, the first night we had a Caribbean Island (Cuba/Peurto Rico) feast the first night, Italian-inspired ribs the second night, and gourmet chili and corn the last night. Each, in it’s own way, was a masterpiece. Of course, we had great wines to accompany every meal. (We may have also had a few mojitos this year)

Contributor Paul Wagner also writes a backpacking blog. He’s written a brief article there about our experience this year.
