In the past I've really enjoyed hiking and camping alone. Nothing like traipsing off into the wide blue yonder, sleeping under the stars etc. I was once woken by a family of kangaroos wandering past within a few feet of me getting breakfast. I've lain awake for hours on end contemplating the clear sky above.
It's a bit different camping in a multi-coloured tent with one or more kids tagging along. But certainly not a bad kind of different. There's nothing like showing your kids the great outdoors and relearning with them the wonders of it all.
So both have their charms, and I plan to do plenty of both in the years to come. Maybe I'll end up living in a cave on a mountain in my old age. Don't worry though, I'll still come down occasionally to keep my post count growing. Or maybe they'll have cave internet by then.
