Hmmm, a man after my own heart..... I was going to comment that a Conlang camping trip sounds a bit like herding cats, but never mind....

My only experience with anything resembling camping was 5 days of bivouac in the army, Feb. 1957, in the woods of Georgia (US). Thank Gu it didn't rain or snow. Not really bad (aside from the latrine arrangements)---and I realize modern camp grounds aren't at quite that primitive level. Still, I'd like to think I could get a proper filet of sole almandine with a nice Chablis....

Lots of B&Bs in Saugatuck (and elsewhere)-- maybe we could take one over for a long weekend or something. Not quite as expensive as a cruise.

(When I worked for a publisher, some of us agitated to hold our semi-annual sales meetings on a cruise ship. Management ignored us.)
