On Saturday night we camped in Shenandoah. I think two years running means that our October camping trip can now be termed an 'annual event.' This year we eschewed 'car camping' (camping at a pre-established site, complete with a fire ring, bathrooms, and the car parked nearby) and did a proper backpacking camping trip. We carried all our food, supplies, and water about a mile and a half into the forest and set up camp alongside a stream. Margot was a real trooper on the hike and earned a virtual merit badge (I say 'virtual' because she's not an actual Scout yet).
