I'm refering to what was it that caused you to go camping for the very first time.

For me it was reading the camping stories published during the fifties and sixties in outdoor magazines like Field & Stream for example. Authors with names such as Ted Trueblood and John Jobson painted a picture in my young mind of adventuresome times spent riverside tending a carefully made fire while a castiron skillet full of fresh caught trout sizzled to perfection. They detailed every aspect of proper camp setup and organization. Where the tent should be placed, and what material was best for kindling a fire in the rain, and so on. After many years of only reading about camping my opportunity finally came in the summer of 1965. My mother asked if I would like to get a tent, and use it on a vaction this summer? Well to wrap this story up I will say my family did get a canvas umbrella tent, and some other items, and spent a memorable week in the Maine woods. This was well before the term RV lifestyle was in use, but it was where my camping roots were planted. What's your story?
