How to Jump Start a Car

Just last weekend I was camping when my family, we were having a terrific time (despite all of the flies) until it came time to head home. We had spent hours that morning folding things up into the smallest bags imaginable (how on Earth do sleeping bags actually fit back in the bags that they came with?) and wedging everything carefully into the car. It’s exhausting, packing up a campsite!

Now, I don’t know if this happened when we first arrived or as we were placing everything back inside the car, but as my husband turned the key of the car we heard that awful “click” that only means one thing: the battery is dead. I wanted to panic, (really, I did!) as we were in the middle of nowhere and our closest neighbors were just visible up on top of a remote hill.  However, I kept my cool and we turned the event into a teaching lesson: How to Jump Start A Car 101.

**For story’s sake, we ended up walking to the neighbor up the hill and they came and gave us a jump!
