    What a great tradition! I have taken my son & daughter camping in the late summer each year before school starts. They are now 15 and 16 and are getting too busy. Enjoy it while you can.

    Can't wait to see Maddie's version. Sounds like it might "shake" things up!

    Thanks for the warm fuzzy.

    Awesome trip.

    It was cool to watch the vid. Thanks for sharing.

    Nothing beats watching a kid play in the woods. My daughters would prefer playing in a creek to playing at a county playground any day of the week (and I am not going to complain a bit).

    Maddie's version is done, and can be found here:

    "I fish because I love to; because I love the environs where trout are found, which are invariably beautiful... because, in a world where most men seem to spend their lives doing things they hate, my fishing is at once an endless source of delight and an act of small rebellion; because trout do not lie or cheat and cannot be bought or bribed or impressed by power, but respond only to quietude and humility and endless patience...." --Robert Traver

    She can think of nothing better to do, and I can't keep her away, not that I want to.

    What a great tradition, and video report! Loved seeing her in the HF Buff, too! She will NEVER forget these hikes with Dad, and will become enmeshed with the outdoor lifestyle which will stand her in good stead forever.

    Great job!

    Thanks, we both enjoy these trips very much. She does think it's funny that there are a lot of kids in her school who would never even consider backpacking. And I love helping her learn to love the outdoors.
