Well, it’s almost the end of May and I still haven’t talked about a personal experiment/challenge yet. Not to mention that I totally missed April. Yikes! I guess it’s time to fix that. Turns out that we’re planning to go camping this weekend – something I am actually really excited about. And not camping in a trailer with showers either.
You see, Brett and I would like to be able to camp in the (somewhat) wilderness. It’s pretty easy to do here near Boulder, CO. There are tons of places to go tent camping, which is actually called disbursement camping or boon docking (Thank you Internet! I had not been able to find the types of campsites we were looking for because I was searching for actual campsites.) We went once last summer and it was so much fun.
We both think it would be cool to have some survival skills and camping is a good way to start learning. Now, I must say that we will still be bringing our food in, but it’s a step in the right direction. It would be really cool if we could take a survival course this summer too. Perhaps that could be another challenge? But, I digress.
I’ve decided to make cooking by fire my challenge for May. Not sure what type of facilities they will have at our campground/site this weekend because our friends made the plans and we’ve never been there. I think this first weekend will be baby steps, but we’ll see.
Wish me luck! I’ll be sure to post photos, updates and recipes when I can because I am not sure of the Internet or phone service situation where we’re going. In all honesty, I would LOVE it if we had to be disconnected. That’s the whole point, right?
