There's so much I love about camping. Much of it has already been mentioned. I love the campfire and fellowship with friends and family. I also enjoy firing up the dutch oven about 9:00 in the morning and cooking a pot roast all day for supper that evening. You have to add a few coals during the day to keep it cooking along slowly and that means you can't wander off to far for very long. My solution to this is to put my favorite chair in arm's reach of the dutch oven and the charcoal and then armed with a Louis L'amour novel, I am ready for a tedious day of reading, napping and smelling dinner cook.
