I know people have mixed feelnigs about camping. Well, now that I think about it, people either love it or they hate it. I can understand why someone wouldn't want to sleep on the ground in the middle of a wifi-less forest with a mere sheet of canvas separating them from that hangry, scavanging bear outside. BUT I also believe that nothing brings out more tranquility than stepping away from the busy world for a day or two to enjoy what we often take for granted (however those knock-down, drag-outs during long portages aren't always the most tranquil).
I just know that i'm in the mood for a serious camping trip lately and I'm hoping to go with some friends from high school before the end of summer. Loving all these items, especially that backpack.
