So as it goes I made a promise to my daughter to take her camping every year. She is five and we are ready to embark on our second camping trip. Our first camping trip was a blast and we both look forward to going camping again ( I am going to start preparing her and I for section hiking the Appalachian trail, but we are at least 1 to 2 years out from that) .
