A Survival Guide for a Family Only Weekend Camping Trip.

Extracts from this document...


A Survival Guide for a Family Only Weekend Camping Trip Surviving a camping trip alone with the family can be extremely difficult, and one wrong move can lead to a living nightmare. Hopefully these suggestions can be a survival guide to enduring an excruciating weekend. First, when in the car, the family might start to sing those long, childish sing-along songs, but don't panic.
