You might think I am sitting at home working on this blog article, but you would be wrong. Due to the magic of automation, I have pre-written this blog article and it is being automatically posted. At least I hope it is. However, if you are reading it, that everything worked as it was supposed to work. And, as you may have already guessed, I am not here writing because I have gone camping. As you reading this, I am sitting back, enjoying the great outdoors with two of my sons, one of my grandsons, my brother-in-law and two nephews. This is a special camp-out as my nephew has enlisted in the Navy (good choice) and thus will not be around for a while to participate in the family camp out for a while. So this camp out, and this article is dedicated to Joey. Good Luck, Joey!
I have enjoyed camping very many years now. My camping experiences have run the gamut from roughing it (sleeping under the stars) to the other extreme of camping in a 31 foot travel trailer with telephone, cable and internet service, and all the comforts of home. Finally I have settled on semi-roughing it, I.E., sleeping in a tent, cooking on a camp stove, and sitting back and relaxing in a comfortable camp chair. For additional relaxation I have found that an occasional nip of Jack Daniels helps maintain the relaxed mood. This year, just to change it up a bit, we have added Tennessee Apple Pie moonshine to the repertoire. I will let you know later how that works out.
Perhaps, as I walk around in the wods and look carefully, or don’t look where I am going, I may be able to answer that time-worn and often asked question, “does a bear defecate in the woods?”. So, here’s to family, fellowship, toasted marshmallows, roaring campfires, and that is all there is to say about that. Anchors Aweigh!
Those are my thoughts, what are yours?
