I'm Not Done Yet
Yesterday I wrote about taking a trip to Jalama Beach, which has sent me into a full blown camping withdrawl. Like a crack addict without his fix, I neeeed to do some camping and I need it now.
As a kid, every summer I would go on at least one camping trip with me family. Usually we would find ourselves in places like Mammoth, Yosemite, Sequoia, Kings Canyon or Big Bear. Places where you are submerged in nature and all of its beauty and hazards. In places like these, you have to hang your food from the trees or in solid steel lockers to avoid being robbed by the local bandits. 4 legged bandits who wont hesitate to remove your face from your skull in order to get that food. We saw the occasional bear and raccoons did get to our gear one time, but we never really had any run ins to write home about. I look back on those summer trips with the most fond memories.
For you indoorsy, city types, I'm sorry to go all outdoorsy on you two days in a row. I thought yesterday's post would be enough but I wasn't done just yet. I think it's out of my system now and I will move on to something different tomorrow.
