As you know, we're in for a raft of bad jokes about how inept the Pattersons are when dealing with the Great Outdoors; this is because Lynn thinks that watching John pretend to be Mister Super-amazing Woodsman when he's not is loads of fun. I think it's dated bullcrap, myself.

Panel 1: As Elly packs her suitcase, John takes chin in hand and says "A weekend camping....just think about it!"

Panel 2: As he prepares to hug her, he says "Rushing rivers (the original had "autumn leaves"), fresh air."

Panel 3: They embrace and he says that it's the sort of thing that makes two people fall in love again.

Panel 4: The moment is sort of spoiled as Mike comes up to them and asks if he can watch.

Summary: It's a fairly cute strip that's a nice change from the daily grind; Mike is being a pill but a realistic one and no harm is really done.
