    Yeah right.. Also we shouldn't greet anyone with a good night. Even if it's night it's a good practice to say good morning...
    So good morning.. Have a good day:)

    Thanks for the morning. I presume baby’s voice woke you up amidst total silence except that of breath.
    It looks like “Hi” is the omnibus greet word that is beyond that time & distance.

    So much work! We hate to drive and we hate to cook/take food. We also pretty much hate remote places unless it’s in a country where someone is there to cook and serve food. Just today, I told DH we have to go to at least one of the national parks and do the whole hike/fish/camp thing. Now, reading about the practicalities of such a trip, I’m wondering if we are cut out for this!

    "Pressure of being Indian, regardless of what her birth certificate says." How true.

    Time flies, doesn't it Laks? And thank God it does. Happened to read this thread when responding to another post. It has turned out to be true .. so true .. so so true.

    : ) It can be kept as simple as one likes or as much work as one wants to..

    We mostly just drive to the entrance of the park, there will be a visitor map board. Sometimes some paper maps too. Pick a trail based on the energy levels. My kid has a way of downloading the trail map to the phone so it works where there is no network.

    For overnight trips that involve camping or staying in a rustic cabin, yes, there is some planning involved. But after the first two three trips, the shopping and packing list gets curated and the whole thing gets easier.

    We try to keep either hiking or camping the main thing, not both in the same trip. If we are camping, then the hikes are short. If we are hiking long distances, we stay in a hotel with good beds, a Starbucks nearby : ) and have been taking two rooms since a long time. A room with two bathrooms would be nice to have in hotels. : )

    In a recent thread "Trip with Acquaintances" @Vedhavalli describes five friends who want to get away from their families and go off into the woods, 4 hr dive away, and stay in some AirB&B, with nearest shop or restaurant 30 min away. Unfortunately each one of the guys know that they cannot ask their wives to stay home and mind the nest, while they take that break. Especially after a year-plus of covid-lockdown misery. And besides, some of the wives on this multi-family overnighter do not even know each other, and for just a one night stand, in a manner of adjusting to strangers, would get hassled a lot and come out of it totally frazzled. But the husbands do not have the gumption for honest communication to suggest to their wives to stay home and avoid the hassle. Instead they had each engaged in a game where the wives would attempt to organize the outing, get peeved at one another, and drop out of the trip on their own.

    An famous Christmas story by O'Henry often comes up in children's books in America. However one of the lessons of the story is never explained to the children. "For the love of god.... ask the person whether or not they want it before you go and sacrifice a lot to get them the whatever". Such children grow up and imagine whatever they tolerate in doing a favor to their spouses would always be a good thing [following paragraphs are from wikipedia]

    "The Gift of the Magi" is a short story by O. Henry first published in 1905. The story tells of a young husband and wife and how they deal with the challenge of buying secret Christmas gifts for each other with very little money. As a sentimental story with a moral lesson about gift-giving, it has been popular for adaptation, especially for presentation at Christmas time. The plot and its twist ending are well-known, and the ending is generally considered an example of comic irony.

    On Christmas Eve, Della Young discovers that she has only $1.87 to buy a present for her husband Jim. She visits the nearby shop of a hairdresser, Madame Sofronie, who buys Della's long hair for $20. Della then uses the money to buy a platinum pocket watch chain for Jim. When Jim comes home from work that evening, Della admits to him that she sold her hair to buy him the chain. Jim gives Della her present-- a set of ornamental combs, which she will be unable to use until her hair grows back out. Della gives Jim the watch chain, and he tells her that he sold the watch to buy the combs.​
