My wife’s never been camping, so we pulled out the tent last night, bought her a sleeping bag and camping mat on sale at Canadian Tire, and tried it out in the side yard last night. It went well! The yard is as lumpy as hell, but with a yoga mat under me I got away with interim tossing and turning and mostly slept real deep. My wife slept like a log.
So camping is now on the menu!
That’s exciting. New things are good! It’s also fun to think about ways to integrate more activity into life, and camping/hiking is one way to do that. We don’t have the gear to really seriously trek, but campsite and day hike is definitely a possibility for us in the mid-future.
