My husband and I prefer to go on mini trips or getaways about three times per year, and they usually only last a few afternoons or a week at the most… I wish that we could stay longer, but our jobs do not allow us to. The last mini trip that we took ended up being quite miserable; We rented a attractive cabin in the middle of nowhere. It was super nice, and it was right on the lake, and everything was perfect except for the fact that the cabin did not have a/c, and we did not realize that when we booked it. I made the mistake of not even checking to see if it had a/c because we had never stayed in a place before that did not have a/c. I just did not even know to check, but I will never make that mistake again. It was so miserable. It was over ninety degrees outside, and the cabin felt even warmer than outside. It was so tepid that we could not sleep in the cabin. We ended up sleeping in the vehicle with the a/c on for two of the afternoons, and the third night, we slept outside under the stars because it was a tad bit cooler that night. I cannot believe how hard it was to function without a/c. I know that people did it for thousands of years before a/c was invented, but once you get used to such luxury, it is hard to go back. I can say that I have never been so thankful for a/c in my life.
