Yes, it was hot--probably too hot for tent camping and camp fires--but we enjoyed both nonetheless. A canoe trip down Sugar Creek (anybody else read the Sugar Creek Gang books when they were kids? Same Sugar Creek?) was great fun. Hiking in canyons (the likes of which I didn't know Indiana had) was unbelievable. Then it was a perfect midnight to view the meteor showers. The two couples cozied up on a blanket (girls in the middle) and saw a bunch of shooting stars. Evidently the best one of the night occurred while I was rubbing my eyes.
Other memorable moments included the Lego candy found at Wilson's market on 31 where everyone waited while Chad and I went in search of a new wheel for the broken down trailor ("It's all part of the camping experience"); poison ivy everywhere; listening to Captain Picard read The Last Battle while on the road; Chad's new hat.
