Ok. The first time my wife and I went camping, we weren't yet married. Now, I had grown up camping. Starting in a tent and working my way up to pop up then travel trailer. She had camped with a friend a couple times in a motor home.

She says, "yeah, I'd like to go camping." Great. I, the poor college kid, go out and spend about $500 on tent, stove, air mattress, etc. and off to Prince Gallitzen we go. First night, she gets up in the middle of the night to go to the restroom. Next thing I know, she comes running, and I mean running, back to the tent. Rips open the zipper and dives in. I ask her what is wrong and she says I have to come with her because there are a bunch of BIG SCARY SPIDERS on the path to the restroom. Begrudgingly, I crawl out of a warm sleeping bag, grab a flashlight, and dutifully walk my fiance to the restroom. As we're walking, I keep looking for these spiders. All of a sudden she screams, "There's one right there!", pointing to the ground. Turns out what she is seeing is the shadow of the leaves from the undergrowth being cast by the flashlight. Move the flashlight, and the shadow moves. Almost fell over I was laughing so hard.

That was before we were married. Can't promise I'd go 20 years later. :whistle:
