“But I was a good sport and was gonna do it to make her happy because she went to a lot of expense to get the camping gear,” Shafer shared. “I was feeling little moody, but started helping her put up the tent.”

No tent, no tenting … howdy sugar

Although Shafer was harassed in regards to the lack of showers, she didn’t have to fret. “As soon as we got the tent up, a huge gust of wind came!” she stated. “It blew it over and tore the tent.”

“The tent blew over so we left,” she laughed. “We both realized we are not campers and need showers. I wasn’t showering in the river. So we drove three hours back to Denver, arriving at our comfy beds at 1 AM!”
