And He Especially Liked Murdering Tresspassers

Tuesday, March 1st, 2011


On our way home from the water park, I really wanted to make a detour to my old summer camp.  It was, as expected, closed for the winter, but it seemed a shame not to at least peek inside.  So, in the glorious tradition of camp sneak-outs, I had a camp sneak-in — otherwise known as tresspassing.

Aside from some fresh paint on the cabins it looked pretty much as I remembered it.  It was strange to have the whole place all to myself, totally quiet.  There was something very peaceful about it.  Peaceful, that is, until the ghost stories of crazy people who roamed the woods started running through my head.

I told Shama we better go.

Both Shama and I were rocking our winter weight, so instead of photos of us in bathing suits, you get these people.

When a water park craving strikes, there’s only one thing to do: go to the Wisconsin Dells.  It’s the middle of winter?  No problem.  The Dells is home to Kalahari: an “authentic African themed” indoor water park.  Just like the water parks in Africa, it had plenty of onion rings, hot dogs, slightly dorky teenage lifeguards who think they’re pretty awesome (they were pretty awesome,) and enough chlorine to sterilize a wildebeast.

After a day at the waterpark, we were planning to party all night at the authentic African-themed dance club.  We didn’t make it to the dance club.  We fell asleep at 9:30.
