Spring is Coming

These beautiful flowers make me think it is time to get out and enjoy mother nature.  What better thing to do than to go camping.  I have camped with my parents in a RV travel trailer when I was younger and in a tent with my own boys.  Now camping can be done in so many ways.  This article I just found talks about tiny camping pods.  WOW! I never would have thought of that.

I enjoy being able to camp where ever I want.  I general use my truck bed tent to camp in remote areas away from campgrounds.  These pods are set up in campgrounds all over the US and are very convenient.  I know that many of you will enjoy staying in these tiny pods and enjoying the spring just like the rest of us. Please let me know about you springtime adventures.

Sexual Abuse in yet Another Sport

We are hearing about our young children and adults being abused in all kinds of sports.  If your have a child that loves to swim competitively and spends alot of time with trainers you might want to check out this article I just found.  It just makes you stop and think about the world we live in today.

Why are organized sports ignoring these accusations of abuse?  I truly believe that if we continue letting these acts happen we will damage our sporting industry. I hope we can put a stop to the abuse, but also the ignorance we have at not believing it is actually happening.

Outdoor Living is a Must!

As an outdoor enthusiast I believe that spending as much time outside as possible is a must.  I love spending time on my deck at home and at my lake lot.  I enjoy having a fire pit on both decks.  It gives you the feeling of camping without actually leaving your home.  All over the country people are adding outdoor living space to their homes or property.  I ran across this article and thought you might like to read it.  Very interesting.

Don't you agree that you can have a fireplace at night?  You can even have a camp fire with out camping.  What a great idea.  
I would love to hear about some of your outdoor living ideas.

 I love to get out into the great outdoors and enjoying Mother Nature’s 

wonders all around me.  My new tent will be awesome for my outdoor 

adventures, whether I want to get out into the wilderness or camp at my 

favorite campgrounds. The tent features a lightweight design that gives 

me great protection from the weather. I also has a lot of room for storage. 

The tent has a canopy that makes it easy for me to enjoy the great outdoors. 

I love getting out into nature after a long week and enjoying some quality 

time camping and relaxing. I am so glad that I found this tent and it has 

been working well for me for a while now. The tent is nice for enjoying 

some awesome views. I like to enjoy my time with my tent, whether I am 

on a lake or I am at a park. I can enjoy my truck tent anywhere. I can have 

an outdoor adventure and feel safe from the elements. I will have good shelter 

and I can take the tent with me anywhere and enjoy some time away from 

home. My tent is great for enjoying downtime anywhere.
