Rule #1 of camping: If it can go wrong, it will. (rain, snow, mosquitos, no smooth ground to set up your tent on, loud neighbors, illness, no toilet paper in the outhouse, burn ban preventing cooking fires, etc.)

Rule #2 of camping: If you didn't bring it yourself, don't count on it being there.

Rule #3 of camping: Congratulations on remembering your tent and food, but did you remember all the other things that will let you enjoy them? Examples: mosquito repellent, sunscreen, extra matches to start cooking fires, extra wood to burn in place of the wet stuff at the site, sunglasses, enough money to be able to buy those one or two items that you forgot, more fresh water than you could ever possibly need, plates and utensils to eat with, etc.
I'd be a better listener if you stopped talking about stupid crap that doesn't matter.
