Here are a few of the lessons I took away from last weekend's camping trip:
- It's good to be away from cell phones and e-mail for a few days. It allows you to go out into the woods and think about...being in the woods.
- Everything cooked over a campfire is delicious. (Well, except for the dessicated can of pork and beans that's apparently a tradition for the group I accompanied, but nobody actually ate any of the beans.)
- The campground owner/canoe outfitter on people shouting and 'yahoo'ing in the woods, "I've been to the city a few times and if I had to live there, I'd need to come out here and yell, too."
- Sleeping in a tent is more comfortable than you'd think, but going back to a bed with a real mattress and sheets afterward is heavenly.
