Our tent set up for the first time

The Camping Trip That Started It All

This post originally appeared on my blog First Class Great Outdoors. Enjoy!

My foray into outdoor adventures all started with a camping trip in July 2008. We stayed close to civilization by camping just outside of the Wisconsin Dells at Rocky Arbor State Park.

While not a perfect trip, I had enough of a good time that I wanted to camp again. Considering I vowed to never, ever camp, I think the desire to make camping a regular part of my life speaks volumes.
