Say the word camping and it brings back my favourite childhood memories. Back in my day when we didn't have cell phones and video games. We packed up our comic books and novels, our frisbees and badminton rackets, our bathing suits and flotation devices and headed for the open road. We roasted marshmallows, stayed up past our bedtimes and woke up to the smell of scrambled eggs sticking to the pan on the Coleman's stove. We were invigorated by the fresh air. We ran around until we were exhausted. We slept soundly. Often these days we long for simpler times. Electronics fill our bags, constant connection consumes our lives. We blog and tweet our vacations. We tell our Facebook friends where we are and what we are doing. But I encourage us to disengage from it all.
