Camping at a 5 Star The Survivor's Package

My wife and I are camping at a 5 star resort in San Diego. No linen, no toiletries, no toilet paper, no light bulbs, no AC, no bed. NADA. Rien du tout.

Just the bare room for $19 a night (normally it is about $200->$300) in this gorgeous golf and spa resort. Check it out: The Ranch Bernardo Inn

We can use all the facilities, and we have a working, if dark and paperless and towel-less WC, and electricity.

So we camp inside the room. Easier than that camping outdoors.

It was a gimmick called the Survivor's Package to drum up business in the recession, and we jumped at it.

I am not sure if I will have internet access (maybe in the lobby) for a few days, so I may not reconnect until after my next doctor's visit, also in San Diego.

Hoping this time away will let me restructure my response to all the personally bad, but not horrible, news of the last few weeks. I desperately need to press my reset button. And remember to pack soap and toilet paper.

That is a bloody, brilliant, idea. I pray the windows at least open. Running water and an operating WC, our forefathers would be envious.
