Yes, readers: I, your blogger, lover of manmade comforts like Netflix, hairdryers, and coffee machines, went camping. I'm usually more of an "urban explorer," but I was persuaded to spend 24 hours in the Catskill Mountains upstate. And guess what? I survived, and I'm happy I went.
The area, North-South Lake Campground, is very beautiful and serene, and offers great views and hiking trails.
My biggest accomplishment was creating a fire all by myself. Though the "E-Z Lite" coals might have helped. ;)
Thanks to my campfire, we could cook food: corn, tofu hot dogs, steak, and beans. (And later…S'MORES!)
