2 years ago I left on my first big western campaign for 3 weeks to Top of the Rockies and the MOA in Redmond OR. Leaving a 16 year old behind, "home alone" as I had no options. The bastard had a keg party my second night out. My parents caught wind of it 3 days out, and were very concerned and I had to cut it short. Top of the Rockies and then home. This year leaving an 18 year old at home, who now has a girlfriend who he is basically joined at the hip to, and she actually comes from a not divorced real family situation and hes there all the time kind of thing, it was nice to come home and the place was the exact disaster I left it in, and the lawn wasn't covered with cigarette butts and beer tops.
