Unfortunately for me, I fell in love with a boy who loves to camp. A boy who loves to camp whose family also loves to camp. I figured I'd be sacrificing some vacations to the inevitability of camping, but to my great delight, I have managed to make it almost seven years with only two family camping trips under my belt. The first was just after we got married. The second was last month.
Although now that I think about it, if we didn't have this backpack I would have been able to stay behind at camp with Claire instead of hiking........ dang it! A missed opportunity.
