My wife and I and our kids were on the river with our boat.We decided to find a place up river to camp.We went up the river found a suitable place.Went home got all of our gear and set up camp.We played on the river all day.that night I tied the boat up to the shore not thinking the river level might drop over night. Well guess what the river dropped so much that the only thing in the water was the prop of the motor.that was the worst thing that has ever happened on my camping trip. what is yours?

A group of us went camping to a spot about an hour's drive from home. It was a sort of island in the middle of a river. The river bed was dry at the time because it was July. We all set up camp and rode our quads up and down the river bed. That night after everyone went to bed, it started to rain. The rain got harder and harder until morning, soon it was like a monsoon. Everyone started packing up their stuff. We were in a tent and there was a huge puddle in it. Everything we owned was soaked. Next, the river started to flow, from the mountains, a trickle at first. Within an hour it was a raging river. We had to cross the river to get off the island. There was much stress and panic as we waited for the river to subside enough for us to leave. We were supposed to stay for four days, but it was a one nighter. It was very stressful thinking we wouldn't get out, but we did.
