From as early as I can remember, I have always loved being outside. In fact, my Dad fondly remembers me demanding “OUT GARDEN! OUT GARDEN” as a toddler. For my 11th birthday, I got a 2-man tent and that was the start of my love of camping. I stayed in friends’ gardens, my own garden and even took it to high school once, pitched it on the school field and then me and my friends sat in it for our dinner hour before taking it down again!
