I don't know why it took so long, but Roywn finally made it on a camping trip. It was only car camping. Considering all the coming and going he really did pretty well, and only woofed once or twice the entire time. He loved sleeping in the tent and would try to hop in anytime the door was open. And he really loved that we all slept on the ground. In fact, he'd made it a point to snuffle in our faces several times a night, just to show how pleased he was.
