30 Days of Rocksmith: Day 7 — Oh, I’ll Be Rocking Family Camp Next Year

[I’m learning to play the guitar by committing to 30 Days of Rocksmith. Here’s how it started.]

Know what my new car has 10 more cubic feet of than my old car? Space. It’s not much. It’s not like I moved from a subcompact to an SUV. But, with that additional 10 cubic feet of space, my wife found a way to pack firewood and kindling to family camp this year. That was on top of the tent, my five-year-old’s bike, dueling coolers, and enough kitchen utensils to equip a food truck. No, I didn’t have a bike rack, so my daughter’s bicycle was in the cab with us. It was less fun than you think.

If it was up to me, it would’ve been hot dogs every night. But with my wife’s level of planning, there was a Taco Night at camp. There was an Italian Night, too. There was enough bacon and eggs to carry me through two weeks’ worth of breakfasts, never mind the fact we’d only have four mornings there. I put up with having an overpacked three-hour drive to family camp because I indeed get eggs and bacon every day of the week there. Goodbye, oatmeal. See you when I get back.

But now, there’s going to be one more thing I want to pack to next year’s family camp. A guitar. While Rocksmith requires an electric guitar, of course, I’ve also managed to pick up an acoustic guitar somewhere in my travels. It’s had a broken string for years now. That should be no surprise. It’s not like I’m up on guitar maintenance yet. But I noticed Rocksmith has a section on the basic care and feeding of your guitar equipment. I’ll be checking that out in due time.
