Every year I go on a little camping trip with some buddies from my hometown.  We have permission to camp out on this incredibly large ranch about 30 min drive from our hometown.  So we camp down in a bottom next to a lake and just a little ways from the river.  It’s absolutely beautiful country.  We fish, set jug lines, sain for crawfish and bait, hunt hogs, and just spend lots of time around the campfire talking about life.  This year i brought my camera along, but i ended up taking most pictures with my iPhone. Since there’s no cell service there thats about the only use for it.

I love camping and I love time with close friends.  I try to have several trips like this a year with friends.  I feel it’s super important and would encourage you to create some sort of annual trip with friends.
