    ...just don't want the help. Unfortunately for my sister, "some people" is her DH.

    She grew up pup camping. He didn't camp at all growing up. They bought their first pup about 7 years ago. He insists on always buying new. After camping last Labor Day in 110 degree heat they opted to sell their pup and upgrade to one with AC and also more space now that they have 3 DD's.

    This weekend we camped together and again it was hot. Temp was 90-95 degrees. Wasn't much of a problem considering we all had AC to go to to cool down in when we needed to. Well, that is if you take the advice of those around you who have had campers all of their lives and also campers with AC. He INSISTED that the windows needed to be open in order to let the hot air out of the camper. The AC ran full blast for the entire weekend. The DD's and my sister froze at night and cooked during the day. When she'd suggest closing the windows, he yelled at her and told her she didn't understand, so just be quiet and do what he says.

    It's so frustrating to watch him treat her that way. She put everything away (alone, because it was Father's Day) today and was so hot because he wouldn't use some common sense!

    This is just one of many dumb things he insists on doing, to the point that he's destroying things because he won't listen to anyone.

    Sorry for the rant, just irritated I guess!

    Send him a YouTube video on how an A/C works. He's got it down for a swamp cooler but sadly mistaken for A/C. The camping can't be good like that and it sounds even demoralizing.


    Hope he wakes up before it's too late. Just be a good brother.....


    Happy Campin'

    I my brother in law would treat my sister like that he would get a piece of my mind. The guy sounds like a total looser.

    We are walking a fine line. If we see it first hand he's going to get an ear full. Unfortunately he's doing this when no one is around and then overly kind to her when we are there. Telling him what I think about him will only make it worse for her at this point. Believe me, we are waiting for him to slip up when we are around.

    I think the story goes that a large busted woman with no bra was trying to make a campfire on the other side if the campground and was smoking the entire place out. This got him angry and INSISTED he go over and show her how to do it the right way. When he did, she packed up the camper and left him there!

    Maybe she went Beth Dutton on him and there was nothing left to find. He would have been considered her assistant and she tends to go through those pretty easily.
