Camping is a memorable experience, both when things go well and when things don’t go as planned. We hear lots of stories around the campfire of crazy, unexpected things that happened on a camping trip. We also hear stories of camping when people were kids. Some people keep a camping journal specifically to remember these special times.
Online Journal – In today’s electronic age we see people turning to online resources for journaling.
