We did lots of this when I was growing up. My favorite memory is when I got to sleep on my own inside our one wheel trailer. My dad made a tent over it. Then I grew too big and didn’t fit in it anymore. Then my brother got to sleep in the trailer. We went to parks in northern California. When I got married we spent almost every summer camping and hiking in Yosemite. It is great to be outdoors in the fresh air. I even skied out to Glacier Point one winter and camped overnight. There was full moon over Half Dome that night. It was spectacular sight.
Then there is the singing around the campfire and roasting marshmallows to make smores. Oh and let’s not forget the smelly stuff I would lather on to stop mosquitoes from biting. I have lots of fond memories from my camping trips.
