Listen: I’ve never been the biggest fan of camping.
Ultimately, I think my problems stem from when I was a Girl Scout back in the day. When I was in elementary school, I found out that I was sick enough to get my spleen removed (that’s another story for another day). However, for the longest time, I wasn’t aware that I was that sick, and I went on camping trips left and right as a Girl Scout and had to leave almost all of them early because my immune system couldn’t handle it at the time.
Fast forward to 2017. Yup, I’m still a little scarred from my experiences back in 1998. However, I’m a relatively healthy adult. When Getaway House invited me to try out their new space in D.C., I figured I’d finally try out “camping” yet again.
