Two weekends ago we went camping with friends and family up in Newton, NJ. To say we had a good time would be the understatement of the year. In fact, I am so hooked that we are already planning another one before it gets too cold to sleep on the ground.
Our friends have this camping thing down pat. From meal planning and execution to packing lists, their knowledge and expertise made it much easier for we novices. I realized that I am fully capable of cooking over an open fire and that spending 48 hours or so outdoors can be chicken soup for the soul.
