Reason for this camping trip goal: Camping is about getting close to nature with an outdoor experience that you will never forget. There is nothing like sleeping in a tent outside and cozying up in a warm sleeping bag, falling asleep to the sounds of nature. If you are able to borrow some gear or purchase second hand gear, camping is more economical than staying in other accommodations, and the gear can be used over and over again.
Camping is something traditionally done during your younger years. Once we get spoiled by the modern luxury of a hotel, it can be hard to return to the basics of camping.
Benefits of a camping trip include:
The beauty of camping is that it is a return to basic activity; you enjoy physical activity with people you care about, in an environment that will make you feel alive again and connected with nature.
My wife, Kathy, and our friends, Gary and Sue, experienced Algonquin Park together during our early courting days, and we created some great memories. We put the canoe on the top of heads, with a life jacket to cushion the weight of the canoe. I'm not sure if this was a recognized technique for transporting a canoe or not, but it's the way we transitioned from one lake to another.
