We just returned from the best campout with my two brothers and their families. Isaac set up a kitchen to feed an army, complete with stovetop, grill, wash tubs, canopy & a tank of water for clean up. Fortunately for the rest of us, he also set up a hammock with its own canopy, so we could leisurely ooo & ahh at him while he cooked all of our meals -- almost. Cooking is Isaac's favorite pastime on campouts. I prefer laziness (fatigue-ziness really -- I'm not the best tent-sleeper), so it works out well all around.
Best Fishing Tip: If you're fishing to make memories for a pack of little kids, pick up a tub of live worms. The worms will keep the younger kids engaged while the older kids have their turn at the poles. By the time we left yesterday, all remaining worms were claimed & named. Every child left happy as could be, fish or no fish.
Nothing like a bit of grime & a hot tent to help you appreciate a warm shower & clean sheets. Works every time. Camping is great that way.
