    Although I love XC & downhill skiing

    and winter hiking, I can't wait for the snow to melt so I can finally try out a bunch of new gear. Planning on many weekend excursions when the weather gets nice!

    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!

    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.

    When I'm out in the woods backpacking

    and camping, I experience inner peace and tranquility unrivaled by other experiences. Our modern way of living obscures our sacred need to connect with nature and the night sky. I can't wait for spring; it can't get here soon enough.

    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!

    "Your thoroughbred camper likes not the

    What's you favorite camping memory?

    I go camping every year with my family and its the best, it a sense of freedom and serenity. We go up into the mountains and basically just chill for a whole week, no worries, no stress, nothing. It's the best!

    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...

    I like to take my 5th wheel somewhere

    and go camping. I like the peace and tranquility that can be enjoyed when spending time in nature. I enjoy my morning coffee around the campfire; and I enjoy my adult beverage around the campfire in the evening. The day is spent doing various activities to enjoy the time away...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    My friend and I were out camping

    when we see this couple, the girl was around 18 and the guy was seriously 50, they were having sex behind a tree. My stupid friend shone the torch at them and they screamed lol. We just turned around and walked off. So funny

    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...

    It seems I have a certain story to tell.

    It's a promise I made you see. It's one of a great man that I just met. Excitingly close to me is he. He brought to me a story in recent days gone by. A story I'll go as far to say, was written with me in mind. He is a man who possess a most passionate heart; that is for...

    Love The Peace It Brings

    Camping is probably one of my favorite things to do. Distant yourself from this technology driven world and just enjoy a camp fire under the stars. Sometimes we (we as me myself and my three sons) go to campgrounds and other times we just find a place and camp. Campgrounds...

    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.

    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.

    Fruit Of The Loon

    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...
