Perfect camping spots are rare. Because, as Roseanne Rosannadanna used to say, “It’s always something.”
Right now I’m at a Natrona County campground up on Casper Mountain. It’s a pay site, so that’s one minus point. But it’s only $10 a night, which is a bargain compared to campgrounds in prime tourist spots. So that gives back about a half point.
The one thing that has me giddy, though, is the total lack of buzzing and biting insects. Considering all the swatting and itching I did the past couple of weeks, buglessness more than compensates for any negatives. If my math is right, that means an approval rating greater than 100 percent. Better than perfect.
I paid for just one night, to see how things were. I’ll get a second night in the morning, then split before the weekend crowd arrives.
