    We Have Always Camped!

    My mom always knew how to have fun....... My father never went anywhere with us. He was either working or drinking beer, being his miserable self. My mom, she took us on vacations. She loved to drive. She bought a tent, a Coleman stove, a hibachi and sleeping bags and off we went...

    I got to spend 3 days

    and 2 nights camping at 10,000 feet on a mountain in Arizona this past summer for a family reunion. It was amazing! Minus the thunderstorms every night, and the thin air (I live much lower than that). Whatta cool family.

    Oh to get some fresh air,

    come close to nature, and see all the stars as you sit around the fire.

    Camping for me is a way to escape

    for a while. I prefer a nice wooded area by a lake or river. I look for secluded spots away from people (a little more freedom to do what you want). I love campfires at night. I love waking up in the morning and bathing in a lake, while my coffee takes its time brewing over the...

    I Wish I Had Remembered To Bring This....

    Invariably, there is always something you forget or wish you had on that camping trip. I keep a lot of my stuff together, for when I go camping, and also keep a list. I have my favorite items I love. I used to bring a french press for coffee (I gotta find it). I have a butterfly...

    Is the reason behind my name.

    I went camping with a couple of girlfriends once. It was so scary, we didn't have a strong man there to protect us, plus it decided to rain that night. We all went into my friend Lauren's tent and cuddled all night in out tank tops and panties. The next morning we went...

    A couple weeks ago I went to the Boundary

    waters in Ely, Minnesota to canoe for six days. I swear that had to be one the most relaxing experiences in my entire life. I fully intend on going back.

    Toasted Marshmallows & Hot Chocolate

    Aside from the back garden, my first proper camping experience was at a festival. In the evening it was beautiful, there were fire performers, tea lights illuminating pathways. The ordinary field had transformed into a magical new world. There were places selling food and drink...

    I spent the majority of last summer camping.

    Most if the time we had a tent but other times we went on "survival" camping trips where you build your own shelter. I love the peace that comes with sleeping in nature.

    Off this week to a church camping retreat.

    Should be great fun. We are taking over the whole campground. I can't wait to be sitting in front of a crackling camp fire - there aren't many things I enjoy more.

    I got to go camping a couple days this summer

    while we were on vacation. I like it in the fall better, though, because of the falling leaves and the roaring fire to cuddle around!

    I wake early before sunrise.

    Stoke up the fire and out on the camp pot. We have a coffee maker in the camper,but something about the smell of the camp pot . Sipping that 1st cup as the sun rises. Not thinking of anything particular,just absorbing and being at peace with nature.

    Fruit Of The Loon

    Camping was a routine part of most every weekend growing up. Each season had something magical. Summer is a given but spring had smelt runs, fall had pink salmon, winter was an excuse to sit in an ice shanty or race snowmobiles. Long weekends and beautiful weather were also handy...

    I absolutely love spending my summers in a tent,

    the fresh air blowing through and refreshing my body and mind, best sleep around. I love staying in my swim suite all day and just lazying around and reading or going boating, maybe even some hiking and fishing. I can't wait for summer!

    The Best Kind Of Work

    I don't just love camping, it was a way of life for me. It started off slowly, weekends in school breaks to get away, mostly in the adventure camp type places. I loved the feeling of being outdoors, seeing the changing seasons up close. Just being able to explore, and give in to...

    It is always a great time, getting the family together to go out an a camping trip. Just enjoying the world be live on and enjoying each others company. I really feel it grows a family bond that you just can't get out of most things.

    How I Lost My Underwear In The Woods

    I love camping. I really do. Except for this one time... I was with 2 volunteer groups and it had rained all day. I wasn't really supposed to be taking a nap in the boys tent, but since we kept both tent flaps open it was okay. I had just changed into dry clothes and I felt like...

    As a child when i'd go camping it was the only time everyone was together and wanting to do the same thing. I'd wake up to the sun barely peeking over the horizon and my dad would always be awake. He'd be making coffee so everyone could have some when they awoke. It was a moment...

    Desert Camping

    We just came back from a camping trip at white sands. Let me tell you! I've always enjoyed camping in the desert. Mountains are great too, but there is something sexy about the desert during sunset and all it's unique beauty.
