Have you ever been camping?

Camping is one of those things that you are either good at or not. I’ve only been camping a few times in my life.

Mostly it’s been camping in my family’s backyard, or my grandparents. Those have been really special and great times to be outdoors.

On the other hand, my most memorable experience camping was in North Carolina during an absolutely horrible rainstorm. We had been canoeing all day long. We set up camp, inflate the air mattress and it starts absolutely pouring. Then, overnight, the mattress sprung a leak. By the time I woke up in the morning, I was drenched and freezing. We were supposed to keep paddling the rest of the river, but we gave up and called the outfitter. Good thing too, because the river started flooding due to all the rain.

In summary, I’ve been camping but I’ve yet to truly have a good experience as an adult. Maybe I’ll do that soon!
