Where in the World is....?

Yes. I am back to civilization and my own bed. Each year our 7th grade class takes part in a Wilderness Leadership Adventure (Challenge) camping excursion, so last week was the time. Anyone who knows me also knows that I am not quite the happy camper. I hate heat. I hate bugs. I hate dirt. I like Hilton. I like Four Seasons. I like Hyatt. You get it.

We departed for Bogue Chitto State Park (1 1/2 hours north of New Orleans) on Wednesday morning and returned on Friday.

The students participated in team building activities, hiking, and canoeing. They were also allowed free-time to partake in water slides and swimming.

Two nights in a tent without A/C in the woods is about all I can handle. I am happy to report that another year down, and I made it home safely. I cannot tell you how exhausted I was on Friday.

Wilderness Adventure, y'all!


  1. You are so good to do that for your kids! I'm sure they all had a blast!

  2. Forget AC, I need a bathroom with running water!
    Can't you call a substitute for those days?

  3. Good morning, Ron! I'm right with you on this one--my idea of "roughing it" is a suite at the Windsor Court with room service and the Polo Lounge! ;) You are quite the trooper! Have a great day! xoxo

  4. I'm with you about the heat, no AC and tenting! I did all that when I was much younger and enjoyed it but not my cup of tea nowadays! That's really nice of you to do this for your students. I bet you slept like a baby when you got to bed Friday night!

  5. The kids look like they had a great time!

  6. I'm sure the kids had a blast though! That looked like a nice area to camp.


Thanks for reading and commenting @ The Uptown Acorn! I love hearing from you. Cheers, y'all!
