As difficult as some feel it is to survive in the space of a small trailer, it's certainly true that it is more difficult to survive in the space of a normal living situation.
These day's most families have plenty of space, even the poorest among us, certainly compared to the general world population, yet the stress of life, work and relationship serves to destroy what typically begins as the happiest of times.
We attended the best wedding we've ever attended in Neveda's Ruby Mountains this year. Our nephews wedding was a three day wedding where practically all 60 participants spent, Friday-Sunday deep in the mountains in a campground, 30 miles from a gas station or grocery store of any kind.
Most slept in tiny A frame shelters with a single light
bulb hopefully in sleeping bags. The bride and groom and Ginny and I each had a trailer.
The bride and groom supplied everything from every meal to all toiletries. The meals were great and embracing...you really got to know everyone in a joyous way. Games, dancing , meal preparation, hikes, ..... all were a blast for three full days.
Life can be beautiful, the choices we make, our attitdue towards the everyday do make the difference.
