I really donít know.
I believe itís something that I would like.
I think that I would enjoy the hiking parts of it.
I think I would like sleeping out under the open sky. (though I need to have a feeling of safety, maybe a park ranger or two, and probably the only time I would use a cell phone). I think I would enjoy fishing; but I donít think I would eat my catch.
I know that it would need to be only a night or two because I love hot showers in the morning.
I know that I would have to have my own personal porta-potty; because I have issue with public restrooms, and I donít want to dig a latrine.
I know that I enjoy the personal comforts of home way too much after writing this essay and that all of my reasons for not going come from fear.
What an interesting concept, I would consider myself an outdoorsy kind of person I like to walk, ride my bike, and rollerblade. I enjoy working outside in my yard. I love star-gazing in the evening, and I even like being in the water. Yet all these things combined when I think of camping make me think of the isolation from my ďconnectionsĒ with the world, when the only sure connection is in Christ. It should be the only connection that Iím afraid of losing. How many things are on a daily basis crowding his space? How many times have I in a carefree way forced God out of the spotlight, all in the name of day to day living?
Iíll have to try this camping thing (really) it may be time to get back to nature.
