    Unfortunately, I don’t know any jokes ABOUT camping. I only know jokes to tell WHILE camping, preferably while emptying the contents of the flask in my backpack, and none of them are appropriate to repeat here.

  • Kaitlyn says:

    Haha fair enough Kevin, I tend to have the same problem with jokes. Well, if NONE of your jokes are even remotely appropriate I’m sure you must have a funny camping story you could share? Surely after your flask is emptied you must have had a few outdoor mis-adventures?

    I sent the new guy down to the creek with a bucket to get some water. He came back 2 minutes later shaken and as white as a ghost with an empty bucket in hand. I asked what the problem was, he said that there was a bear in the creek waste deep, I told him that the bear was more afraid of him than you are of him. He said in that case, that water was not fit to drink.
