“Wild” is one of those movies that captivated me from the get go.
Cheryl Strayed is a broken woman who sends herself on a journey of self-discovery. With nada experience, training and preparation, she impulsively decides to hike 1,100 miles through the desert and harsh terrain of the Pacific Crest Trail.
I just wish my husband saw it before he decided last minute that we’re going camping this weekend.
At least we’re one ahead of Cheryl because in less than 24 hours before taking suggested trip, my husband had the brilliant idea to first test build the kick-arse, who-needs-the Hilton, three room tent.
In the front yard.
Free entertainment for the entire neighbourhood.
Concerns were first raised when Mr Surfer pulled out all the awning poles out of the tent bag big enough to fit a corpse.
Poor guy just glared at the long pieces of aluminium.
“Three…I only need three. Sooo, why are there six?”
The puzzled look quickly turned to one of desperation when trying to read the instructions:
“Why? Why??? I don’t understand why!”
I tried to be helpful. Suggesting perhaps that there were six poles because three were for the front and the other three were, um…for the back?
Anyway, we eventually figured it out.
I’m just relieved that the tent is another thing my husband can get up.
Have you gone camping this summer? What’s been your most memorable adventure? Have you seen Wild yet?
