My mom had a friend that would take me camping every now and again. Then My mom remarried to a "cowboy" who lived in Arizona. We would drive out to the middle of the desert and camp, go deer hunting and stay at "dear camp" with the guys. After there divorse the camping all but ended. I tried to camp as much as I could as a young adult, but did very little. Now that I have kids of my own I try to go 2x a summer, but that has been a challenge. With my NTU popup I plan on doing ALOT more camping so my kids can answer this post with fond memories when thy are grown.
