Thought it would be fun to see what everyone else was doing.
Iíll start with one.
When I was about 12 or 13, three of my best friends and I went on the first and only ďAnnual Camp outĒ. We grabbed our gear, whatever we thought we needed, and headed out back of my parents house. We had over 100 acres and that was connected to hundreds of other acres in Upstate NY. We used plastic sleds and backpacks, and just started walking. Eventually we found a spot and set up a base camp. We had plenty of food, plenty of firewood, and plenty of fun. We had a few pup tents with us so we went out on adventures, exploring and just wandering about. We would set up satellite camps for the night and return to base the next day. All of us carved out some miniature bows and made some arrows just for something to do. We stayed out in the woods by ourselves for 7 days. Somewhere near day 4 we ran out of fresh water, so we did cheat and sneak back to the house in the middle of the night, got our water and left again, but I remember that week as one of the best in my childhood.
Iím sure there are some great stories out there from when you were a kid, letís hear them.
