    ...like I've been ready since I packed up last summer.

    BUT...it's a new season and time to think smores, "hammer" burgers, camp fires, skinny dips; my base camp sign says it all. [Corroboro Lodge - Latin for: Place of Strength] - Cool Breeze, Warm Fire, Easy Chair, Empty Plates, Short Sips, Long Life - To the Days that Are.

    And since the former President of the United States - George Bush did us a favour by declaring an earlier start on day light savings time we should be getting ready right????


    If you are interested here are some on line quizzes that you might like to try to pump up the enthusiasm.

    For solo campers (like me): solo camping quiz - http://adventure.howstuffworks.com/outdoor-activities-channel.htm
    No trace camping: Take the Outdoor Skills Quiz - http://www.planetanimals.com/logue/
    Camping Knowledge: http://www.nerdtests.com/ Quiz

    There are others too. If you pick up on a notable one let me know - I want to be really really ready!

    Laughter and a good sense of humor are a important part of getting ready for and then onsite camping. If The tent is too short enjoy the breeze.

    Ha...Ha...how very true. Sometimes we find that the preparation time is the most fun.

    Also remember nothing is ever as easy as it looks. There are no buttons to push when things don't get done.

    And sometimes that is just fine. Our lives seem to have all kinds of buttons or facsimiles - telephones, computers, i pads just to name a few. Maybe that isn't a bad idea.

    You are right about that, but I always get a smile on my face when I see the Staples, easy button. It often makes me wish that things were that easy all the time. A bit of humor and nothing more. :)

    True...an easy button would come in handy. Sometimes I get so lazy I just want supper to be served. But that aint gonna happen unless I get up and cook it :(.

    I actually bought one of those at one point as a gift for someone around when they first started selling them, it was really quite amusing actually. It is funny that those went from being a marketing tool for one of their ad campaigns to now they are still selling them years later.
