Camera is important in camping trips

    One aspect of a camping trip is in saving the memory. I always capture anything to record whatever it is that looks interesting when I am on a camping trip. Sometimes it’s just the vegetation with some unique plants, sometimes the insects like the giant grasshopper. But seeing wild animals like monkeys, it is one of the greatest shots I made. In one mountain resort in the province of Zambales, I was face to face with monkeys on the road and one big monkey even tried to grab my camera. I heard the screams of my family inside the car. It was scary but fun. Unfortunately, no one had taken my picture in that incident.

    Maybe the monkey was going to take your picture? I always take pictures especially at the campsite because it saves the date stamp, and I tease people at work about the great time. If I don't have a great time, we'll I don't want to say I lie or anything, but I might stretch it a little.

    ...I usually take pictures and some of my colleagues will take videos of the event as well. In the past it has been my/our custom to take photos and write up a journal that is given out in early fall as we gathered around the barbecue and swapped [stretched] stories. We traditionally had one award. It is known as the "Tit Award". The award - with patch and scroll - was given to the first individual or group who made a sensational error. Things like burning the entire camp meal, or a canoe overturn when it shouldn't have happened etc.

    I still journal and will take one off the shelf, usually during the winter months, and read.

    From a 2000 Algonquin Journal -

    Welcome Adventure.
    Welcome Wholesome Fun.
    Welcome Peace and Tranquility.
    Welcome Algonquin.
    Welcome Memories.
    Welcome to YOUR MEMORIES...
    "Hold them firm and cherish your memories for they will bring back comfort and cheer in years to come. Take them from off the shelf on some stormy winter night and read with delight from the chronicle of your own life. Smile, be content and remember good things, good people, good food, good fellowship and good times. "

    I have never been the biggest photographer out there but I do really like how the phone really makes everything all in one. It is just easier to carry and it means that I am destined to get at least a couple good photos when I go out.
