Camping, A Part of the Symposium Experience...for some
Waking to the sound of a gentle surf on a sandy beach can be heaven. On the other hand, waking up to a torrential storm that seems to want to move the tent to a new location is also part of the camping experience. Sometimes it's finding a place to read and be alone. Sometimes it's the pits. But always it is an example of man taking a step back on the evolutionary scale and, like a butterfly emerging from a cocoon, a man wakes to new possibilities. It is, after all, a time for man to revisit his roots, to become the hunter gatherer, and to honor the traditions of all men from time in memoriam. (Used with permission of the Neanderthal)
This summer, take your son camping and teach him the ways.
Paddle safe...

A man needs to make sure his boys are properly arranged when he hits his feet for the first time in the morning. No camping training needed there!
