    Camping was one of my family's all time favorites also. We did lots of it as kids, and I count it for being one of the reasons why we learned to respect our land. My Dad was much like yours, and we always had a fire to roast wienies or marshmallows on. Smores are a must at the fire! We all learned how to behave safely around a fire.

    Sitting around a fire is becoming a lost art. Clear back to the Indians, when they sat around a fire and smoked the Peace Pipe. It brings everyone together.

    And you're so right about some people never having the opportunities like that. I can't say how many times I've ridden alone for hours, up and up....and then when finally to the top, being basically in Heaven. You turn and look back, and see how gorgeous the land is, (where you've just ridden from) and amazement at what God has given us. I've taken some people on rides like that, who then turn and look and gasp. Looking down on a river, miles of land..... it's striking. Indescribeable. And it's ours. Love it.

    Thanks again

  • When my kids were young we went camping every other weekend. We fished and we boated and spend the night around a camp fire. I got a scar on my neck from a wood chip flying out of the fire.

    We started out with an old van and then went to a huge tent. Later we got a camper and then a Motor Home. I still love to sleep in a tent.

    we were going to go camping this week end but I'm to sick so were not going.

    We have a fire pit in are back yard that we sit around at least once a week when the weather is nice.

    I love the outdoors!
