    I've had good memories hiking in the woods.

    One of my girl cousins would play their all the time. She is a few years older than i. We tried building a fort but it wouldn't stay standing. What can you expect from young girls????

    I heard your supposed to take mushrooms and go in the woods.. i've never done it, but wow...... other than that, trailing for miles, walking until blisters are on my feet, finding a river, sitting down and finding a camping area is my desert for a meal for the mind, in life.
