    Camping in northern California one summer in

    July, we had set up camp when it started to sprinkle. How Fun! I love the rain! We bundled into the tent to eat munchies and play cards on the 'oh so fancy' air mattress! After a time it began to rain harder!! I was loving it!! Then I noticed the Triskets box...was floating...

    It's like the most awesome tradition in our

    family. Every year when the weather becomes cold and windy (it's ALWAYS summer and burning in our country), we all go. 8 aunts and 4 uncles. 30 first cousins. It's the time where we all bring out the child spirit in us. Playing soccer and volley ball. All kinds of playing cards...

    Getting out in the woods is what I've always

    liked. Camping and enjoying the forest. The desert is OK, but the ocean is great too. It really doesn't matter where you end up as long as your out in the element's with a fire and shelter.

    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 am going backpacking with my dad on fall

    break. We are going to hike, set camp, and eat sardines. I look forward to it, even the sardines I guess.

    I'm more than just camping right now.

    I'm literally living in a tent. I want a house/flat etc to live in but to me this is perfect. I'm a woodland child that loves the cold (I thrive in cold temperatures but everyone has there limits). personal life issues (no family no friends) have made me live in a tent but I...

    I just got back from two weeks of camping.

    I enjoyed my down time away from work. It is nice to be in nature and relax. I spent the first week with my uncle and the second week with my dad.

    Especially at a secluded lake

    where we can truly be 1 with nature. The quiet solitude and freedom to be our carnal selves.

    Oh to get some fresh air,

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

    This was always a massive part of my childhood.

    Dad would drive the family somewhere or hire a boat so we could explore the islands around Troms. Mum would pack food. It was simpler and less challenging but such a magical experience then I could ever recreate now. Because as lucky as I was to grow up in a beautiful part of...

    If you went camping with a friend,

    and drank a bit too much and then woke the next morning with your pants around ankles and Vaseline on your a$$, would you tell anyone?

    One of my fondest memories of camping is of a

    precious moment with my oldest girl. I've been having a lot of flashbacks of her as a little girl recently. I'm thinking it's because she is going to become a mother herself later this year. While camping I'm almost always the very first one awake in the morning. I just love...

    Backcountry camping is one of my favourite

    things to do. Taking the bare minimum and hanging out in the forest or a secluded beach somewhere just away from everything. It really doesn't get any better than that

    I use to go on these camping trips with Outlook

    and it was a 9 day trip out in the woods and you started at one place and then ended up in a other place by the 9 days so each day you would travel we would canoe from lake to lake and between lakes we would have to portage and it was just the best thing I ever did I have so...

    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...

    Just went camping four-ish weeks ago right

    before the semester started. Kind of a last hurrah of the summer. I went with a couple friends and we hiked out to this beautiful creek in the mountains and set up camp right next to it. I hung my hammock from two trees right on the banks of the creek, if I was any further out I...

    Growing up in North Wales I was never really one

    for city life. Clubs don't appeal to me and I don't like bars. One fond memory was always camping. Something so relaxing and peaceful about pitching up your little tent, sitting outside on a fold out chair and watching the sun creep behind the tree line and all the stars light...

    For Labor Day Weekend,

    A perfect weekend with my best friend.

    A private beach, sex talk, smores, bonfires, stars and endless laughter. Oh and don't forget our racoon friend who made the night all the more exciting.

    We went on our first camping trip of the year

    this past weekend! We set up a tent instead of taking our camper, and we spent the weekend fishing and enjoying a fire. Caught lots of bluegill, but that was all. We met some nice people and hope to maybe plan a trip with some of them soon! :)

    At least once a month we go

    for the weekend. A chance to regroup. Sift through the madness you struggle with. The basics. Simplicity. Detaching from the constant frenzy around us. The sunrises and sunsets. Perspective. Plus a little of an exibitionist comes out. Nothing like pressing her up against a tree...

    I like to take my 5th wheel somewhere

    I can't wait to find a patch of paradise,

    pitch up, collect wood, sit around a crackling fire, wake up with the birds, cook our catch on the coals and strum my guitar, late into the night stars twinkling above and in your eyes.

    i love waking up in the morning in the

    wilderness. making coffee then getting the fire restarted. The only sounds are the birds and the animals that are looking for their own breakfast. the sunlight of dawn starting to poke through the leaves. there is such peace in those moments.

    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.
