We used to go camping all the time as kids. Most of our summer vacations consisted of tent camping in the Oregon wildnerness. As a kid, it was fun running around the woods, learning how to fish and making s'mores, but as I got older I lost interest in the great outdoors and discovered the joys of hotel vacations. Now that we have a young daughter, we've gotten nostalgic about camping and wondered if maybe we should take a tent vacation.
