Pre-Memorial Weekend Camping Extravaganza

So in order to avoid the holiday traffic and crowded camp sites, we decided to start our memorial day weekend early by going camping on Thursday. It started out with a looong three hour ride through the mountains, looking for a decent and secluded campsite. But alas! We found a beatiful area to set up camp. Step 1, we had to set up our huge tent made for 6.

Step 2, collect soaking wet firewood in the dark. Step 3, attempted, and failed to start a campfire. Step 4, cook marshmallows over burning newspaper. And to top off the night, have our campsite raided by a bear-just kidding. Overall, it was a great learning experience in preparation needed for a leisure evening in the wild.
