Some people don't like to sleep on the ground. They don't see the charm in it, at all. I'm not one of those. I am the other sort, a true nature boy. So, I bought a new tent. The time had come. My nearly 30 year old Eureka had given up its last semblance of dignity and order at Burning Man.
Rhys and I have made big plans to camp out in the backyard sometime soon. We have been talking about it ever since we visited the local REI.
I think I'm going to really like this whole having a son thing. He and I are great buddies and there is still much buddying to do.
