oh, come on...that's half the fun of camping! if it was all nice and neat and reasonable, it wouldn't be called "roughing it". also...next time anyone goes camping, check weather.com for the site you're going to to see if it's gonna rain and you can be better prepared. though, one thing i am picky about is keeping the inside of my new truck clean. muddy stuff would irritate me to no end if i had to put it in my Rodeo for the trip home.
