We believe in "roughing it", but being comfortable while doing so. It has taken experience to find these things out, and we are still learning each year we go, easier ways to do things.

The most beautiful sight, that I have ever seen was before my eyes! So I stood on the edge of this bluff, the sun came up out of the mist of the valley like a big red ball of fire. My three boys came up beside me and said in hushed tones, Boy, God sure does make things V.M_..A!^. .1 -i i. *> __ " FAMILY CAMPING By Shirley Snyder Along about ihis time of year, there's a new' look in the eyes oi every member of the Snyder family. I catch Daddy sneaking off downstairs to gaze wistfully at our camping equipment stowed away in the basement corner —the umbrella tent, the stove, the lantern, the cook kit, the army cots—Our three boys, John, 8, Tom, 7, and Mark, C, begin talking at the supper table about where we will camp this year, and I find myself leafing through my Better Homes and Garden's Barbecue Book, for new tasty camp menus. You see, camping is our family 'lobby. We are, after the- third year of it, "sold" on camping out, as a family recreation. * * * The boys and Iheir Daddy firsi ame up with the idea of camp- ng out, three years ago. As the only female mcrr.ber of the family, I knew I'd be outvoted, so I agreed to go along as "chid cook"; For the first trip, we wanfcd to go a bit further than Call State Park, and yet eioau enough to Algona that we could load up and drive back, if we couldn't take ''outdoor jiving". We, chose Ledges Stale Park, at Boone. 1 smile to myself, whenever 1 think of that first morning wo started out on our first camping trip. We had planned weeks-ahead of time—and mad« a list a mile long. We didn't want to be without a thing; Come to think of it, we did have everything? There were boxos of canned goods, a big box of blankets, pup tent for the boys to sleep in, boxes of staples, with soap spilling out, many changes pf clothing, and one box containing lotions, repellents, laxatives, aspirin, ear-drops, anvi-biotics— a cure for every disease we might come down with. Pushing the last box in, and piling the suitcases on top, we- gaily waved good bye to pyr amused neigh- bour, checked our list once more, to be sure we hadn't forgotten a thing—and headed for the Ledges. » *• * }'d like to say here, that since out first trip —* we have profited by our "mistakes." We take pup tent. Just as it was up, it began to lean, and fell right down on top of him. My husband is a fairly patient man, who seldom loses his temper, but this was too much. Right next to ub was a'fellow camper, experienced and sure of himself, who had put up his tent in nothing flat. Daddy's egq was hurt, and he decided right then and there, camping was not for him. He probably would have gone home ihat,,.very minute, but the boyi, and "I outvoted, him, and that segan for us, wonderful exper- ences in camping. Much to the Chief Cook's surprise, she loved camping. • * » The next year, we planned further * ahead for camping — beginning in January to road camping books, magazines, and an excellent campguide, which gives the names of all the campgrounds with facilities, in the United States and Canada. From this, we selected a new camp site, Wyalusing State Park, near Prairie Du Chien, Wisconsin. That summer, we added something "new" to our camping equipment. I could see that things were not organized for me to get meals efficiently for the hungry men in camp. Every bit of food, dishes, salt and pepper, etc. was in a box, and it seemed the thing 1 was looking for, was at the bottom of the box. So our winter project was a "camp cabinet". We measured the width of the station wagon, and allowed room for the ice chest and gasoline stove -4- T-he 26" remaining provided the width of the cabinet. It was 28" high and 10" deep. It was a sort of cupboard ma'cle i'rom plywood and partitioned to hold all my cooking supplies, nesting set, lantern, canned goods, etc. There was even a paper towel rack hung on the side and nails for toothbrushes. Now ,1 had everything in its place to cook with a miniature "kitchen" in the back of the station wagon, with the tailgate as a work table. We could stop anyplace along the road, and in five minutes, J could have dinner cooking. * N At Wyalusing Stale Park, a 5 hour drive from here, and a most beautiful place with excellent facilities, we set up the Snyder camp on a big bluif. We could look down on a huge valley where the Mississippi and Wisconsin Rivers join. Everywhere I looked, families like ourselves were working together, getting their curnp in readiness. Daddy became "first sergeant" and issued the orders. Each boy hud his own duties, and there was no groaning about jobs to do, because this is camping, where everyone pitches in. John's duly wa,s to pump up thy air mattresses, with a bicycle pump. Torn got wood and located the water for Daddy. Mark helped unload the bedding $nd pound the metal stages for the tent I was at my "kitchen", preparing supper, our big meal of the day. t • * * • * Thfc.t night, after we had settled down, I heard a noise in ou* garbage can. I poked Low an<j said, "Has someone moved in next to us?" Th.ey'ye «ufe ppjsy people." .To satiny me, he Jwjned on the flashlight, and there peering over the garbage can were two huge ey»s — I began lo shiver and stud, beautiful, doesn't He, Mom couldn't answer. Mom? 1 Our third trip took us to Gooseberry Falls, on Lake Superior s north shore. By this year, we had all of the camping equipment we felt we needed, and had added an umbrella tent and metal stakes. We chose a site, a little apart from everyone with our own special view of Lake Superior through the trees. Everyone went to their duties and camp was set up in no time. After everyone had a hot shower, and I had Camp Chowder (ask Everett Barr for the recipe), we went down to the sand beach. It was as if we were alone on an island of our own. The -gulls flew overhead, the waves rolled in on the beach and we all lay on the warm sand, listening to the sounds and watching the sun go down. I felt as if I could stay there forever and be happy. » * * Experts claim that camping is like eating olives. You have to try it a few times, before you like it. So if you have never camped before, I would suggest that before you buy expensive equipment, you borrow or rent what you need for your first adventure, to see how you like it. If it's what you like to do with your family, gradually add to your equipment every year. Before you go camping, plan your trip — that's half the fun of camping. Talk to veteran campers and get ideas. Read campinjj magazines; in your camp, Watch for short-cuts by observing old-time campers. Learning tq be a good camper comes only through experience. * * * As a family, we have achieved a closeness through camping that we could never have obtained any other way. Our boys have learned to be more self-reliant, more observant. By getting away from the noise'of T.V., we have once again learned the art of conversation, and the fascination of books. We are ap- peciating God's world; we learn to relax—one can't hurry a*camp fire, a mother can't scrub a tent floor, a clock is unimportant in camp; we nave enjoyed the fellowship of other e a m p e r s There's a special feeling among campers, every one speaks in a camp-friendliness that is contagious. Camping is so completely different from the type of life we' live at home, that we come home completely refreshed and planning to go again.
