Camping




     Perhaps it's because summer is essentially at its end and I was struck with an odd case of seasonal nostalgia, but camping has been on the brain as of late. Frankly that's just plain cruel: couldn't I have gotten the urge to go camping at the beginning of summer when there was actually time and the proper weather to do so? Hmm? 
     The last time I went camping was in 2010, but I would hardly say I was "roughing it." My friends and I had a nice little reserved camping space 20 yards from the beach, a fire pit, barbecues and coin operated showers. Still, there is something magical about camping. You unzip your tent early in the morning and step out into the crisp air, everything just a little damp with a fresh layer of dew. You probably haven't showered in two or three days but nobody cares. You are completely unplugged and disconnected from the outside world and that's okay. Just you, nature and the people you love is enough.
Anyone wanna go camping? I'll get my tent.

I just fell in love with camping last year. We managed to get in 4 trips this year. And now we are thinking about booking a trip in september/october because I love Ontario in the fall. So it's not too late to go camping. I think it's a perfect time - plus you wont get the crowds - so it will feel more isolated.

I've never been camping. I think I'm secretly afraid I'll get mauled by a bear :/ Is it likely? Probably not. But still...

That first picture is seriously THE WAY to camp. Wow. And I've been getting the urge too just now that it's getting cold... what the heck? Cold weather camping is pretty fun though so why not give it a shot?

I always sleep SO well when camping. Nature's soundtrack is just the best

Whoa - these are all so cool!! Especially that camping in the trees, although I'd be concerned about falling out... haha.

Can't remember the last time I've been camping. A group of friends and I just went on a weekend getaway that we called "camping" but we really stayed in a 5,000 sq ft log mansion... haha. So yeah, haven't roughed it out in the woods for a while either.

I love nature, but don't know any this about camping. What precaution I have to take while I am doing camping.
