    Soo.. I sit outside with my tortoise a few

    hours everyday so he can eat some grass and weeds. Because of this, I usually end up staring at the grass bored out of my mind. Every once and a while though, something happens that I think is cool. Like.. a bird will sit a few feet away from me, a rabbit will watch me from...

    Raised On The Trails

    My dad took me hiking all the time as a kid. I was almost always the only girl, but I was usually tougher than the boys we'd camp and hike with. I learned how to fish in the ocean, but then fished in lakes on camping trips also. I'd like to live closer to hiking trails so I could...

    My Favorite Thing To Do...

    ... is to just go out someplace with a tent, and minimal supplies, and just relax in nature. No cell phone, no laptop, no electronics of any kind. To just sit there, eyes closed, listening to the sounds all around. Forget about work, bills, everything else for a few days. I'm...

    I used teach students winter camping.

    Build shelters out of snow. It was an awesome experience. Miss those cold nights bundled up in a pile of snow.

    Always have. I love getting away from everything

    for a few days, spending it with nature. It helps me unwind, de-stress and makes me feel more alive.

    I think the hardest part about any type of

    camping is packing. You always start with very little and by the time you get done, you end up with 500 more items you don't need. There is always a question deep in your mind like what if? I'm having that problem and right now I don't have any room for my tooth brush lol.

    outdoors and in nature everyday. Some of the best times have been spent sitting around an open campfire or hiking some remote trail.
