    That's great!
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
    Romans 8:18,21-22

    I'm working on the same goal with my boy and my girl. Using the slow sell right now but being able to bring his friends later to show off the new bushcraft skills he is learning is about to eat him alive.

    No wound? No scar?
    Yet, as the Master shall the servant be,
    And piercd are the feet that follow Me.
    But thine are whole; can he have followed far
    Who hast no wound or scar?

    Excerpt from a poem by Amy Carmichael
    Missionary to orphans in India.
    She suffered much -- and bore much eternal fruit.

    There are Crock Pots and there are Microwaves. The world does microwaves; God does crock pots.

    thanks guys

    I'm lucky that both my kids have been camping since they were infants
    My son went to a hammock last year - my daughter (13) still prefers the comfort of our tent ( it's 17' x 19' with 2 rooms and a built in doghouse ) pretty much a small cottage.

    she's saying she might want to try the hammock this summer
