May 2013: The Happy Campers
Grilling, tubing, bonfires and smoothies—nothing’s off limits for this fun-loving crew
In 2008, me and my AA friends were taking a road trip to a St. Patty’s Day supper and speaker meeting in southwestern Nebraska; all four of us had under three years of sobriety. I had heard of an old Boy Scout camp, which had been converted into an archeological and Native American educational center with a campground and two cabins for rent. The camp was on the way to where the event was being held, just a four-mile drive off the main highway. I asked my co-pilots if they wanted to check it out and all agreed.
