It looks as though the best thing about this is at 4:30 in the morning - by the time one really wakes up - it's over.

Camping just ISN'T camping unless you are roughing it Basheva. You can't go beyond a four-star hotel and still call it camping.

ok ok - four star hotel, but it has to have a 5 star restaurant.

Image my idea of camping is like Basheva's. unfortunately, my school has these compulsory camps every two years. this year we had to sleep in the hall of our school with our sleeping bags and i woke up with a backache! my school's dance camp is also going to be like that, i suppose, but i'm looking forwards to it. <BR>P.S. does anyone know the difference between forward and forwards, toward and towards?

Pearl:<P>I know! I know! <P>"Forward" must mean advancing in the direction of a goal that has been previously designated as a destination; "Forwards" are those tall guys on the sides of a basketball team.<P>"Toward" must be advancing in the direction of any goal, regardless of previous orientation; and "Towards" are the places in a hospital you go to when you have a problem with an ingrown nail.<P>(Please note: these definitions are for entertainment purposes only.
