Hello, Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here!
Camping is a favorite pastime and I am planning a trip with my father, my nephew, and my son for Father’s Day.
There has been a lot of winter camping in my life and so campsite selection will be a little different this year. Typically, I select the sunniest spot near a lot of firewood, but this year’s selection will be shady.
It is good for us to get out every once in a while. There is something about the mountains and the outdoors that brings a sense of excitement and adventure.
I asked the 12 year veteran of life what he wanted to bring along to eat for the trip and the list was a mix of junk food and basic cooking ingredients. We are cooks, no doubt about it and I was proud of him for thinking of things like oatmeal, eggs, and chicken.
Years of institutional cooking has made me a junk food snob. I like things made from the base material and prepackaged food is cringeworthy. I love to cook and bake.
With the company I keep, this will be impractical. We will be running and gunning all day and all night and the time for cooking will be limited.
There will be a large group of like-minded folk and I look forward to it.
My Beloved will have a great time as well. She will be out hosting a few lady’s nights doing things like shopping, clipping each other’s toenails, and smearing clay on faces.
I understand these things to be important to women, but I can not conceptualize the enjoyment.
What are your Summer plans?
