That a 5-Star hotel and room service is the best camping trip! Lol. Vicki H.
He taught me how to make the most of whatever you had and still have the time of your life camping. The memories of camping with him are still so vivid and filled with extremely happy memories. Wendy G.
My dad taught me how to put up a tent – my tent today has ten wheels under it. Ron S.
To ALWAYS bring a big blue tarp and rope. Lol – we live in the great Northwest. Clam digging. He so loved the beach! My family (ALL MY FAMILY) still goes to the beach as much as we can all year long! Anita D.
My Dad taught me that camping was reserved for US Army National Guard duty. After my 20 years on active duty I know better :>) It’s a whole lot more and surely a lot more fun. (Through the eyes of a 20-year retired female veteran.) Joanne B.

That the BEST breakfast ever is trout caught at sunrise, cooked by mom in cast iron skillet with real butter! That, and baked potatoes cooked in the campfire coals in just their skins…. Shoot, now I’m starving! Diane A.
How to hook a worm and gut a fish. Anita W.
Not to worry about being dirty! Mike S.
My father taught me as a young boy that it is not fun to sleep out under the stars on a creek bank on a blanket. I was awakened in the middle of the night with a warm breath in my face – a range cow had wandered up trying to figure what we were; scared this young boy half to death! Dad never took me camping again for the rest of his life. Now as a 70-year old grandfather, I like to take my four-year-old grandson camping whenever possible, however a 30-foot motorhome fits the bill now instead of sleeping out under the stars on a blanket. Lee M.
Everything I know. Walter W.
How to build a great campfire. Laurie C.
He taught me how to enjoy the forest and to pack out everything we took in. When we left a site you would never know we were ever there. I took my son camping and passed these values to him. I cannot wait to take my two grandchildren camping, but now it will be in a travel trailer. Ronald H.
My dad taught me how to fish. Sue W.
The best nights and mornings of my life were spent camping with my dad and they still are. He taught me to fish, camp old school style, and now that were are all getting older and his princess won’t sleep on the ground anymore we trailer it with my children. He now teaches them all of life’s treasures. Cindy S.
