My daughter had been asking to go to the Adirondacks to do some wilderness exploring for the past couple of months. She has never been camping and I suggested a shorter trip closer to home first in order for her to see if she was really ready for it.
My friends and I were planning to head to Little Rock City in southwest New York and I asked the girls (daughter and her friend) if they wanted to go. They said yes and so it was. I had extra hammocks and they were told there were no facilities in a state forest and they would have to rough it. I showed my daughter the first Shug video which she watched in silence, but showed no interest in continuing with them.
We arrived at Little Rock City and did a quick look around. It seemed promising, so we started to set up.
I was tying the Marlin Spike Hitch on my daughter's suspension, and behind me I hear her say "On the knot, not the toggle" repeatedly. I turn around to face her and she says "Do you want me to s h o w y o u i n s l o w m o t i o n?" to which we both started laughing.
Everyone had a good time, except for Dan who had the faulty ENO Guardian and left. We explored for the remainder of the morning and then there was a thunderstorm in the afternoon, but my daughter commented how the sound of thunder echoing through the hills was quite unique.
