The Internet, helping you relive childhood memories

I stayed in this exact cabin when I was about 10 years old.

I slept in the twin bed in the corner bedroom.  I was the only one in the family who had a private room.  At the time, there was a door leading from that bedroom into the bathroom, a door which would stick and had to be yanked open. The window in the room was broken, letting cold air in at night, but the bed was nice and warm.

One night, I woke up and had to pee really bad, but the bathroom door was stuck. The door into the bedroom had also gotten locked somehow (probably one of my sisters), trapping me in the bedroom!  I tried not to make too much noise, as I didn't want to wake anyone up, but I could not get either door open. I was thinking about trying to pee through the broken glass, but the window was too high off the ground for me. Fortunately my mother had gotten up as well, heard me struggling with the door and let me out.

It's nice to see that the cabin is still there and even has the same name (most of the cabins there are named for trout).

Trivia: The lake scenes in Star Trek: Insurrection were shot at Convict Lake.
