The camping trip was a success. We stayed in Pocahontas State Park, there was a great turn-out, and I earned my husband's respect when I built a fire using one match. We loved seeing a plethora of stars (I really forget that's possible sometimes), helping cook breakfast for 200 people, and enjoying a seriously beautiful area.
The only hitch would be the 7 hours of torture in the middle where we tried to sleep. No pads + no air mattress + insufficient blankets + chilly temperatures = one loooong night. But other than that, we had a great time!
PS- Thanks for all the vertigo sympathy. Several of you even offered some great cures, and I'm excited to look into them. I must admit, however, that I may have found my own remedy: roasted marshmallows. All I know is that I felt dizzy on Friday, I caved under the weight of my marshmallow weakness and ate who KNOWS how many Friday night, and I woke up Saturday feeling dizzy-free. It's a theory I'm willing to test again.
