We’re not nessesarily dining together, or showering together or building a giant humongus camp focal point together. Instead, maybe we’ll dine together if we’re ‘home’ at the same time. We certainly won’t be washing one another’s dishes! Maybe we’ll hang out under our (not so very large but quite homey and pleasant) shade structure together. We’ll certainly watch out for one another, keeping the dust madness away.

And of course, there will be Peeps. And they will be lit on fire and consumed with glee.
