I never went on a camping trip with my father. At least not one that I can remember. Dad, if your reading, no hard feelings. It never really bothered me because I didn’t know what I was missing. By the time I started RVing with my own children, about five years ago, I was having too much fun with them to get all sad and mopey about the past. So why do I bring it up?

It was our fourth glittering summer morning on Cape Cod and I was brewing up a pot of coffee from Beanstock Roasters, whose headquarters was located about a mile up the bike path from our campground.  We were almost out of beans and I was considering pedaling over to the roastery to reload.  Then I heard a loud THWACKING noise coming from the rear of our camper.  Max and Theo were already up so I quickly filled a mug and headed outside to see what kind of trouble they were up to. They were playing nicely with their action figures on the... Read More
