Last weekend we did a family camping trip to the White Mountains, and I have to say it was really fun. Really the object of camping is to take all the stuff from your house. Put it in a vehicle, drive for 3 hours, put all the stuff outside vehicle, and then drink some beer. We went with a few other families, so the little guy had friends to play with. The best thing we did though, is get a coffee percolator. That made everything great! --Jay D.
