Camping! In April!

March 29, 2011
Camping about 50 miles from the Arctic Ocean

So I love camping. Like, a lot.
Last year’s camping season began in May and lasted through the end of October. I camped in Alaska, the Yukon, British Columbia, and Oregon. I camped on warm days, on cold days, in rain, in snow, in parking lots, and in the middle of nowhere. A couple of mornings I woke up with my sleeping bag frozen to the walls of my tent.
This year I get to start in April. Woot!
Next week I’m headed to a remote area of Oregon. Sure, it’s just a couple of nights, but I am oh-so-excited! I can’t wait to start pulling out my camping gear.
I’m also getting geared up to do some camp cooking. Now, I don’t have a campstove. I do it all over an open fire. Last year I had the opportunity to teach some French tourists how to toast bread using a forked stick over the fire while camping alongside the Denali Highway in Alaska. Can it get much better than that?
What are your favorite camping recipes?

    Wow love all the places you have camped at. Now that my girls are getting older I can not wait to introduce them to camping! Stopping by from "swinging by sunday" to follow and say hello 🙂

    Oh you lucky girl, camping already! We love camping as well and the further away from civilization the better. Can't say as I have a favourite camping recipe, just love cooking over an open fire because EVERYTHING tastes so much better! Have a great time and hope it stays warm and dry for you, Deb
