There is something about the outdoors that captivates us. It could be the freedom, the fresh air, the beauty, the plants and animals, or all the above. My guess is that if you are reading this blog your answer is probably the same as mine, the latter one.
My name is Adam. And like thousands of other people around the globe, I work in an office. It’s a nice office and I can certainly get my work done there, but it’s also where I spend the majority of my time. I spend hours sitting in front of a computer with fluorescent lighting overhead. As I try to stay focused on my work, often times my thoughts wander out of my office to a forest with fresh air, a tent, and a campfire. They wander to the great outdoors.
My wife Mary and I try to get out and go camping whenever we can. It’s our chance to experience unique scenery and to eat, sleep, and play outdoors. Seeing as I can’t always go camping as much as I’d like, I decided that this blog would be a great opportunity to express my thoughts and ideas for the outdoors and share experiences with others.
As I post entries to this blog, I hope you participate by leaving your own thoughts and ideas. I don’t claim to know all there is to know about camping, but I sure would like to learn. You will find that the majority of my comments will surround tent camping in the Midwest (mainly Wisconsin) seeing as that’s where we live, however I’m certainly open to comments about how things are done in other parts of the country, or even other countries for that matter. Simply put, this blogs purpose is to discuss camping and the great outdoors. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
