We might be hillbillies

What with Husband deciding to take his own bear box up to Tuolemne Meadows and all.

But seriously—he has a point. The ones the campgrounds have never have enough room. And who wants to put anything smelling remotely of civilization in your car when bears up there know what the good stuff looks like and are perfectly willing to rip out a window to get at it.

But still . . .

Anywhoo, we're be occupying a group site in Tuolemne Meadows (cleverly avoiding the knife fight required to land nonreservation sites) and trying to convince curious rangers that we really do have thirteen people. Shouldn't be too hard—when are our kids ever in one place long enough count?

Have a fun filled relaxing vacation!! I know you will enjoy your family and friends.

Yes, but you're NoCal hillbillies, so you're almost certainly drinking organic moonshine.

Hope you have an awesome trip!

Aww, what's a camping trip without a knife fight?

And you call yourselves hillbillies...

Hey, Cindy! Hope you had an awesome trip to Tuolumne. Great story on the Kindle in the August 3rd New Yorker. I can't find it online, but it's a pretty candid look at the little gray box....
